Subject: REPLY to SPAMELA RE: Hoarding By .TV


        Spamela, It is a fact that .TV is hoarding the best names. What do they gain by doing it? Look at it this way..How much do you think it would be worth If you were given the right to pick and keep just 100 Domain names from one of the new TLDs before anyone else has a chance to pick. If your answer isn't in the 10's of millions then you are a bad picker. Of course they have'nt started building sites themselves...YET! But don't think for a minute that IdeaLabs does'nt have a strategy in place. I'm sure they are content to sit on thier inventory for the time being and let the paying customers develop and advertise thier own sites which will increase awareness and the value of .TV Real Estate. In a strictly business sense, Idealabs' takeover of the ccTLD .TV is nothing short of brilliant. But the self interest they have displyed hardly qualifies them as purveyors of public trust. Nor does it qualify them to be operators of a gTLD.
