    Why in the world should there be "negotiations" after a TLD is accepted?

    ICANN should be simply saying "OK, you pass the objective standards". (And those objective standards should truely be objective, and they should pertain to technical capabilities only.)

    Post selection negotions suggests that the obligations (and tolls) to be levied on the winner are yet to be established. That is wrong.

    There should be fixed obligations - much as there is for a driver's license - and nothing more.

    Tailor made contracts can be a way to disguise the imposition of additional requirements.

    The real .MAIL application ? from Mr. .WEB ?

    The real .MAIL application ?


    http://www.ascregistry.org/Application/default.htm [ascregistry.org]

    "Christopher Ambler, Chief Software Strategist
    Christopher has been involved with the Internet and software development since
    the early 1980's. The author of the popular shareware program FSUUCP, he wrote
    one of the first personal computer utilities for Internet communications in
    1987. A veteran of Microsoft, Christopher worked on Exchange Server and was
    awarded a patent for his design of key communication components. He has been
    involved in Internet governance issues since 1995, and the ICANN process since
    its formation, participating in the creation process.

    After leaving Microsoft in 2000, Christopher participated in the new TLD
    selection process and consulted for a number of registrars and registries
    before coming to eNom. He brings his considerable experience in software design
    and development to bear in creating cutting-edge Internet applications. He is
    considered an expert on Microsoft's technologies and is the author of the Wrox
    Press book, 'IIS 6 Programmers Handbook.' In addition to design and
    development, Christopher examines the short and long-term strategic
    implications of new and existing products, services and helps to identify new
    markets, trends and opportunities."


    The ironic thing is that the .MAIL TLD is alive and well and operated by Name-Space.com. Mr. .WEB apparently thinks he can get the U.S. Government to help him crush that prior use.

    Wow, I love the anonymous posts trying to badmouth the application just because I helped on it. I'm so glad to see that the ad hominem attack is still alive and well, and practiced by cowards who are afraid to own their words.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    eNOM and .WEB ?
    by Anonymous on Monday April 12 2004, @06:44AM (#13351)
    Mr. .WEB seems to want to hide his affiliation with eNOM and the .MAIL TLD [which already exists].

    eNOM claims that Mr. .WEB is their strategist.

    Why wouldn't the eNOM strategist recommend to eNOM that they and their resellers market .WEB names ?

    Consider the other Registrars and Resellers who are now helping to market the NEW.NET TLDs.

    Why does .WEB endorse taking .MAIL which exists ?

    Why does .WEB endorse taking .MAIL which exists ?

    Should another company (like TwoCows?) go ahead and take .WEB and make it a success ?
