Subject: ICANN scammed out of $950,000 I agree


      I found a press release put out by names secure and think it is wrong that they be allowed to join up together and weasel out of the application fee. $50,000 is a joke to these people. They claim to control 80% of the market, this is what we don't need!
ICANN, IOD is one of the few competetive choices. I also agree that if this process is open and fair then you are compelled to award .Web to IOD.
