IOD reports that they have taken about 20,000 registrations for .web names, compared to the many millions now on file with Network Solutions.  Are you saying that there aren't any good .web names left?  If you are this concerned about pre-registration, then why don't you go and get your own name.

Your entire arguement doesn't seem valid.  Even after the .web registry becomes active, there will be those who don't get the name they want because they didn't get there in time.

Pretend the .web registry is now active.  The only difference between myself and you is that I am willing to take a financial risk in order to get my desired .web name, whereas you are not.  Please do not try to penalize me for my willingness to accept risk and register a domain with IOD.
