Subject: Matter Of Fairness

Message:
 

 
                Let's talk fairness.  When .COMs, .NETs, and .ORGs were first available, many countries worldwide were not informed or prepared to take advantage.  Should we recall all TLDs untill everyone is onboard?  Should we wait for the .WEB ad campaign in Haiti before
you or I are able to buy .WEB names? 

Many of IOD's customers are from other countries.  Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Saudi Arabiam, India, Pakistan,  et al, now have a level playing field thanks to IOD and .WEB.  Do you see this?  It's a very important issue, not to be lost in the smoke and haze of this forum.  IOD's .WEB has become the Internet version of Affirmative Action, enabling peoples worldwide the to compete on the internet.  This was not the case upon rollout of .COM, .NET, and .ORG.

The argument: "I didn't know about it, therfore, it's not fair" is disingenuous.
