We are surprised by the vast reaction to our statement
as about the fact that 90% of our arguments were accepted even by the
fiercest enimies of Image Online Design's application.
As to the above comments,
we have prepared the following answers:
>>NSI, the registrar, currently
charges $29 on top of the registry
fee (for a total registration fee of $35).

everything but fair.

represented worldwide, too.
ICANN is not about to create a worldwide monopole.
>>It should be

and thus has a great vested interest in the

Funny enough the people using this argument
resemble each other.
ICANN should definitely request full authentification.
