Subject: Then clear .com either... (Including pre-registrations taken in 1993)


If you know IOD's history you can understand that in 1996 they
started to take registrations in good faith, based on IANA's
Postel Draft.
Such registrations were useful to test the functionality of the
.web registry (.web domains can be browsed with alternative
root servers, see and demonstrated that IOD has
a strong international support from Internet users.
This is what Afilias and Neustar do NOT have.

Actually IOD and .web registrants are a single entity, since
I believe that IOD could not file an application for .web
if they did not have 20,000 registrants (who paid a fee
for registering .web domains).

If you still believe that IOD's .web registrations must be wiped out,
then please post a message asking that .com registrations are
wiped out either, including *pre-pregistrations* taken by NSI
in 1993, before .com became active.
