Mr Hynes,

I you are indeed passing judgement on IOD because of the actions of some of their supporters (myself included), then I think you run the risk of committing the same mistake that Screwtape (the senior demon) in CS Lewis's Screwtape Letters said sinners were committing.

I would agree with you on the fact that there have been some messages in the previous forum that reflect badly on IOD supporters. At the same time however, there are equally uneducated (if not utterly moronic) messages against IOD as well.

Now, if it is really the actions of the supporters' actions that turn you off, I should think that you should be even more turned off by the illogical ranting in some anti-IOD messages (read: "Afilias Rules!", "IOD sucks big time" et al).

Furthermore, some of these anti-IOD posters were anonymous! >GASP!< Which should turn you off even more since you see disclosure as being important.

Bottom Line: IOD should be judged on its own merits, not on the faux pas of its' supporters.
