So what practical steps does New.net need to take to reduce the load on
the help desks? Going out of business, getting rid of the dumb plug-in,

Looks like you already have three practical solutions right there.
Well, two out of three ain't a bad start.
What isn't practical about using a proper root server? ;)
I agree with this fully, which is why, should this situation arise, my
response would be "I'm sorry, this is new.net's mess. They have to clean it
up. Here's their phone number."
I won't bother to solve someone else's problems unless I believe in their
cause (I don't) or am under their employ (I'm not).
Fair comment. But it's not New.net that will take the hit at the help
desk. This is like a new neighbor having loud parties disturbing the peace
and quiet in your neighborhood which was helping your property value.
Ignoring it and letting the neighborhood go downhill is going to cost you
If they act on the voting, it certainly will. Especially given the catchall
domain space they have created for themselves.
Their technical specs are fuzzy, with no end in sight for the new TLD's
they introduce (go to the homepage- oh look! you can vote for a new TLD!
dear god, what a disaster that could turn into... running-shoes.nike is
just a few million bucks away).
"Voting" has been done by Name Space for what, four years? Their track
record isn't exactly astounding, even after plonking down $50k into the
ICANN travel-junket fund. Voting is not going to set the world on fire.
It's a marketing tool that makes spectacular collisions in DNS.
Heh. I didn't realize "Fraud and lies are a bad business model" were the
kind of suggestions you were fishing or.
Yeah. This is the stuff that I was looking for. Thanks.
