Subject: Sir, there is no fire here.


Sir, don't scream "fire" where there isn't any.
The registry went online, and people knew that it was online.

People registered what they wanted.

Should everyone that Ambler and other IOD employees know personally be disallowed from registering anything?

If it was part of the process, then there is no impropriety.

As I understand it, NSI was taking preregistrants that ultimately got incorporated into the Internet root when they (NSI) was itself accepted. And by that point NSI hoarded just about everything in THEIR OWN NAME. Take a look at who owns just about all but 2 of the single letter domains. NSI.

I think if you take a look at how many domains IOD or Ambler personally own, you will see a very short list. If there was impropriety, that list would hit the floor and roll down the hallway.

And if you have seen a listing of their own domains, you will see, mostly, domains relevant to their business operation. But again, the list is very short.

There is no fire here, sir.

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.
