Subject: I disagree -- add new TLD's now !!!


Most of the people who say that it is "too early" to add new domain names are sitting on a bunch of "dot coms" that they bought and are trying to sell now. If we were to add new TLDs it would be a terrible inconvenience to all the cybersquatters and speculators everywhere who have tied up thousands, or millions of dollars in hopes that they could turn a profit on these names.

I know that Joe owns some domains for sale... how about Jack and Frank? Do you guys own domains that you want to get rid of before we deflate the price of your investment by introducing new TLDs ??

Once more reason that we should introduce new TLDS now. The "artificial scarcity" created by the lack of competition would end this type of "mass speculation" and reduce cybersquatting.
