Re: MEDIA: ICANN rejects .xxx domain

  • From: John Palmer (NANOG Acct)

Splintering the namespace is a convenient excuse that ICANN uses to
engage in restraint of trade and excessive regulation. ICANN was
never given the right to regulate entry into the industry, only to be 
a technical coordinator. 

Calling people kooks is a good way to get sued, but it doesn't add
anything useful to the debate.
