Re: Domain Rant.

The following is from Computer Reseller News, 720 dated 1/20/97, page 7:

"Vars Concerned over IP Payment Plan", by Sam Masud, Washington

... 8< snip
"The registry would have ISP's pay annual fees between $2,000 and $20,000,
depending on the amount of IP space bought.  Web site owvers would be
slapped with a one-time fee of $2,500 to $10,000..  Network Solutions Inc.,
a vendor charged with allocating Internet addresses through a division
called InterNIC, said the registry proposal is up for comment but could be
implemented within three to six months following discussion."
...

I did NOT make this up or base it on unsubstantiated rumor.

Please stop spreading vicous unsubstantiated rumors, Mr. NetSurfer.   No
one has proposed any "$20,000/year/domain" charges.

BTW: It is customary to prefix signatures with the string "\n-- \n",
such that mail user agents can skip over them.  Unless, of course, that
cool banner is part of your content.
