Subject: Fairness....what is fair?


What is fair?

I think it is fair that those who think to look for something in
advance of mass marketing benefit from the foresight of having
looked. Even when no one is sure that the merchandise is going to
get the final stamp of approval.

They ordered their merchandise in anticipation of final availablity.
Period. It happens all the time in the real world.

I think it is equally fair that those who slumbered and didn't care
or think to look, miss the best stuff from the shelves.

I currently know some people who haven't a clue where to register
a .com. Some people don't know that non-corporate entities CAN
register .coms.

Is it unfair that I have knowledge about .coms that they don't?
Should I turn mine over to them because---aww---they didn't know?
There is a crapload that I am unfamiliar with. I didn't know
that a certain stock was going to split. Certain people close to
the pulse of Wallstreet had the knowledge because specialists know
their field.

Having said that, the .web wasn't GUARDED knowledge, or knowledge
made known to a selected few. It was just a not-commonly-known

What is fair?

Fair is a reward that matches the foresight.

Or in my case. . . just blind luck. I stumbled onto Image Online
Design quite by accident. My jaw dropped. I did some preliminary
research that while they were at risk, they were not a scam agency.

And then I risked my money.

Sorry if I am not excited about relinquishing what I came
across to those who were on the potty.


ICANN: Be an agency for the People as well as an agency devoted to corporate interests.

Bring IOD's .web into the Internet root, and allow .web to become the TLD of the People.

Then grant us protection.
