Re: FW: IAHC/IANA Verdict

  • From: Avi Freedman
  • Date: Wed Feb 05 14:06:45 1997

Could you please keep this garbage off of NANOG, Jim?
Noone cares about IPv8.
And noone wants to think of .com as "Stargate 5".

Why not get involved with the real workers over at the IETF and
stop wasting your time?
