Subject: After thorough research of applications, I agree with IOD...

I must admit after thouroughly researching IOD's application against Afilias' and some of the others, IOD truly stands as a fair balance between the individual and big-business.

In addition, even though pre-registration seems unfair, it is much better than the round robin queueing approach that Afilias wishes to institute. It is questionable whether one could even obtain a domain name during the "start-up period" under the Afilias approach. And I do agree that Afilias stands for big business; their policy is centered around the transferral of names on the MERE perception of trademark violation, among other things.

As a private citizen, I simply wish to obtain 3-5 quality names for future business prospects. I am not trying to register hundreds of names simply for resale.

As a new supporter of IOD, then, I feel that we should all be responsible when registering .web names. Irresponsibility on our part could jeopardize IOD's reception of the .web gTLD. I feel that most of us here simply want a few desirable names; we are not all like Mr. Brittan, who is trying to buy up every piece of ".web real estate." Continued activities like this will surely place IOD at a significant disadvantage in the long-run.
