    funny thing is, I actually have chronic M.E. syndrome - which is C.F.S for the uninformed - there are courtesy links to support organisation for the illness on my site.

    I noticed that. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. If you are telling the truth (a reasonable thing to wonder under the circumstances), you have my sincere empathy. That is an illness I once suffered from. I am not normally so self-disclosive on ICANNWatch but what they hey, most everyone has gone home from this thread.

    For those who don't know, M.E. is often considered incurable. I was certainly led to believe that it was by the specialists I saw. I did my own research via the internet, came up with my own treatment protocol (which used neither prescription meds nor snakeoil, a pox on both those houses too) and put it to use. I have since been symptom free for about 4 years (I consider myself cured). Without the nearly free and open access of the internet to information I needed I would still be in a bad way, or worse. It is a hellish illness I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. That is one of the main reasons why I am so passionate that the control freaks not take over the namespace. They want an information highway lined with their billboards selling you stuff that is useless, or worse than useless, and they don't want you to see anything else. And ICANN is their willing stooge.

    I wish you the best of luck Adrian, but registering domains like take.prozak.name or do-not-take.prozak.name (for example) just gives them the excuse to erect more billboards, and fences, and tollbooths, and... -g
