Subject: A plea for objectivity


                                Whether or not new gTLDs are added, what and how many they should be, what should be the registration process, and who should be the registry and registrars: these are decisions that will ultimately affect billions of people around the world, fundamentally shaping the growth of the internet for years to come.

There are a lot of dissenting voices in this forum. The opinions posted here are not necessarily reflective of society's as a whole. Rather, they are the voices of a tiny handful of people who are choosing to speak up for their own reasons. Some of these reasons are selfish. Some may be noble. Yours is a thankless job, ICANN members, and you will hear many competing viewpoints. But I urge you to remain objective and to not be unduly influenced by what you see in this forum. By considering all sides, you will be able to make the decisions that are in the best interests of hundreds of millions of people.
