Subject: People have already paid for their domain names on a gamble

Eliahu -

.WEB is only fashionable because the idea of the web is new, at least to older people.  Companies want to emphasis their association with this "new" concept.

Within a few years the idea of the web will be established, and companies that still see this association as anything other than normal will be seen as dated.  It may be a gem now, but that will quickly pass.

Lapointe -

If you read more of the postings you will see there are hundreds of people who have paid for tens of thousands of domain names ending in .WEB, and if the wrong company wins .WEB they will be out of luck.

This is one reason why they are so vocal in their support of one side or the other.
