    From response:
    "All indications are that users, important members of the internet community we all serve, are benefiting from the improved web navigation offered by Site Finder"

    Confucius say:
    Large amounts of ad revenue can cause one to have selective hearing.

    techical concern...
    by Anonymous on Monday September 22 2003, @07:46PM (#12281)
    how's this for a technical concern:
    typoed domains in e-mail addresses are queued up and a bounce isn't delivered to the sender for up to 5 days after the original message was sent due to the fact that the sending mail server is unable to connect to
    That's a long time to wait to find out you had a typo in the address of an e-mail you sent.

    The TLD sponsor contracts shown on ICANN’s site seem to require some interesting things from TDL sponsors such as VeriSign…
    ·TDL sponsors must provide an accurate size/count of their domain namespace.
    ·TDL sponsors must pay a fee to ICANN for each domain in their namespace.

    Now that VeriSign’s domain namespace is larger than the number of atoms in the known universe I look forward to seeing the size of the fee they with be paying.

    Why the ICANN doesn't tell Verisign who's the boss ?
