Subject: OK, but your information is flawed.


        Read the original RFC that discussed the various TLDs. (RFC 1591) .org was NEVER INTENDED solely for non-profit organizations.  It was intended as a miscellaneous "catch-all" for companies/organizations/individuals who didn't fit neatly into one of the other TLD categories.

No one is arguing that non-profits shouldn't have their own TLD -- just create a new one for them, rather than taking away .org.
