RE: Statements against new.net?

I cannot say that I agree wholeheartedly with ICANN's decision making
process. However, New.Net's way of creating new TLDs is *not* the way to
do it! Furthermore, attempting to circumvent ICANN and the current DNS
system is *not* going to get New.Net any brownie points with them, and most
certainly isn't going to help get new TLDs established in the proper DNS
Perhaps you might like to define "cooperating" for us? Has ICANN
cooperated with the individuals and organizations that currently run
alternate TLDs which predate the existence of ICANN? Or is it
rather simply that "might makes right" and they only need to cooperate
with "people that matter?"
Besides, why can't you face the fact that this isn't some rebellion against
ICANN? It's nothing more than a money scam. I seriously doubt that
New.Net or it's investors care about ICANN or it's politics. Somebody got
an idea, saw dollar signs, and the marketroids went wild. This kind of
greed, IMNSHO, contributes largely to the poor performance of dotcom/tech
If the marketroids are going to have this level of control over the
technical aspects of the Internet, why don't we all just march over to the
marketing department, hand them our root and enable passwords, and tell
them, "Ok, you created this mess, now run the fscking thing yourself!" and
take a _long_ vacation?
