Subject: A "fresh" .web database is the only fair approach.


        I myself had looked into getting a .web address some time back.  However, I didn't have the money to waste on something that wasn't definate at the time.  I was a college student on limited budget and couldn't see myself speding the money on a domain that wouldn't be "live" for quite a while...if at all.

There have been rumors of .com, et al. pre-registration before NSI was official for it.  However, the Net back then and the Net now have two very different faces.

For those who already paid for .web registrations, then I'm sorry you've thrown your money away.  There was nothing official that gave a time, date, or organization concerning the release of a potential .web domain.  Everything even _now_ is still speculative. 

You know, ICANN may decide not to even relase .web to _anybody_ with all of the controversy now...and then where would you be?
