    Washington Post Picks Up Story

    See:

    Dot-COM Waiting List Under Fire [washingtonpost.com]

    Of course, Mary Hewitt failed to mention that in the public discussions, there was CONSENSUS opposition to it, and that ICANN's Board decision was not reflective of the public discussions. I'm glad to see folks are beginning to notice that ICANN has crossed a line, and that unless they shape up, they will no longer be put in a position to make those poor decisions again.

    There was more misinformation in that article re: "load" being an issue, which is incorrect. See my posts here [dnso.org] and here [dnso.org] which use Verisign's own data and words, to refute the "load" issue.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. I guess that's why you've posted anonymously, as you're likely a shill.

    It was a consensus in the Names Council, by a 15-3 vote -- a supermajority above the two-thirds level needed to establish a consensus. See Names Council Minutes [dnso.org]

    Item 3: Wait Listing Service - report and vote to adopt

    .......

    "Philip Sheppard moved for a vote of adoption for the report as a whole.

    15 voted in favour, 3 voted against (the members of the gTLD constituency) 1 abstention (IPC). Greg Ruth was absent, no proxy given. The motion carried with a greater than two-thirds majority making this a consensus policy recommendation of the DNSO. This reflected the vote within the task force itself on the recommendations.

    Decision 3: Report adopted"
