Subject: Say Yes to IOD


    To be direct with you your analogy is dumb.
    IOD has been in existence before ICANN for one
    They have a product that people want. 20,000 registrations from 98 different countries proves it.

   How is IOD dangerous to the stability of the internet?
   Your post has no substance at all.

What gets me is how people can actually post against IOD and believe it is fair to steal away a business from someone who took the initiative, had vision and made .Web a reality and has provided a valuable service. While others were talking this company has been doing. They had permission to start the registry and perhaps IANA didn't think IOD would amount to anything but once they realized Mr. Amblers vision and witnessed his building success had second thoughts out of greed and wanted it all to themselves.

It would be a sad day indeed for this country when we start allowing peoples businesses to be taken away just because someone else covets it.
