Subject: Leave .ORG Domains alone !


        I would like to voice protest against the decision being considered to explicitly limit .ORG domain names to non-profit organizations.

Although it is a good idea to encourage this practice, it is absolutely out of the question to enforce it - Many people have already invested time and money in building up .ORG sites, and not all of them are non-profits!  Some are families, some are hobby sites or open-source software projects (which are usually managed by for-profit companies, even though the project may be public domain or GPL)

For new domains going forward, set any rules you'd like before opening them up, but we CANNOT retrofit.
