Subject: .org must be left open for personal use


      The .org domain must be left open for personal use for a number
of reasons:
      1) It has been the only domain where personal websites seem
         to fit.
      2) The .com domain is almost totally saturated, evidenced by
         the fact that companies have to invent new WORDS to be
         their name so they can register (Agilent, Lucent, etc.)
      3) Even adding a *new* TLD for personals would create confusion
         and unnecessary hassel.
      I however, agree fully that companies and commercial
         organizations should be barred from the .org domain.
      How about this, if you want to *sell* something from your site
      in .org, you must be registered as an NPO or lost your domain.

As an aside, since most of the comments so far seem to be revolving
around the .org issue, perhaps this was just a decoy to distract us
from the fact that VeriSign is completely taking over the .com, I seem
to recall that the registrar was supposed to be separate.
