Subject: I support .web and IOD, because...


There is a great need for a new unrestricted TLD to compete with the US-centric .com. The Internet is for the world not just the US.

.WEB is the far most suitable string for this purpose as it works very well world-wide.

There is also a need to stimulate competition as Network Solutions has what we can call a monopoly on com/net/org. Afilias is therefor (among other reasons such as Ken Stubbs conflict of interest) not suitable to handle or even participate in handling the .web TLD. As a matter of fact i don't think that Afilias should get any gTLD at all.

To me IO Designs application looks very serious. They've also been around for a while and have always shown respect to the process and to their customers. The fact that mr Ambler participates in this forum, trying to answer questions about their application is a good sign. (Have anyone seen some answers from Ken Stubbs & Co?)
