    Re:eNOM and .WEB ?

    I doubt he wants to hide his affiliation with eNom and the .mail TLD, given that his name appears on the .mail TLD and given that he cites eNom on his resume over at resume.ambler.net.

    Regarding your assertion that Ambler recommend to eNom that they promote .web -- You do realize, of course, that it would be futile as the current round is for restricted, sponsored TLDs. .Web remains an un-restricted, un-sponsored gTLD and the round of applications in which it will participate has not yet commenced.

    This is all rather public information.

    Indeed? Pray tell, how?

    No, seriously. We looked into it. Even if the sponsoring organization was the W3C (the only possibly choice), how do you define the community?

    Saying that the community is "people with web sites" is so broad as to fail the test that ICANN has created.

    If you, Mr. or Ms. Anonymous, can outline a way that .Web could have been credibly proposed as a sponsored TLD, and not just be an unsponsored, unrestricted gTLD trying to pass itself off as an sTLD, I'd love to hear it.

    For that matter, there are a few sTLD proposals that, in my opinion, look like gTLDs trying to sneak in. I trust that ICANN will see this and, at a minimum, put them into the next round as gTLDs.

    Personally, I would not support .web as a restricted TLD. It would be an artificial imposition on a string that has clearly broad-reaching, generic attributes.

    Open .web to the Internet community for a plethora uses.

    Besides, I agree with Ambler. I cannot fathom how one would go about explaining that .web is a restricted TLD.
