    ARIN charges $25,000 per year for a unique
    block of addresses ?

    Why pay $25,000 when you can have one for $6 ?

    Why are non-profit organizations so expensive ?

    Where are the Single-Letter .NET Names ?

    E.NET does not seem to exist

    I.NET and Q.NET seem to exist

    q.net. 172800 IN NS custom2.gandi.net.
    q.net. 172800 IN NS ns7.gandi.net.

    Where are the rest of the Single-Letter .NET Names ?

    Please ICANN, support .xxx this time around. This is an execellent idea. One could block the domain access. This would eliminate the ACLU argument that it is worth a legitimate attempt. We have nothing to lose at this point. Having recently completed a 40 page paper on ICANN, of which 10 pages were dedicated to the idea that this is a step in the best interests of everyone that the only fair way to handel the .travel domains is let the people who have a right to the industry to organize is through a non-profit foundation structured to support the anti-forgery method of the two contending systems to use. Yes, I know, competition is often a virtue in a free-market situation, but I'm not sure this applies to naming systems where consistency of addressing is useful. If somebody, for whatever reason, wishes to create competitive phone number to DNS lookups, this one is a current mail server, they would be fairly small, but there's nothing wrong with this registry giving it a try anyway. The sex-entertainment industry is obviously part of the spectrum), have been rejected so far; the .KIDS.US domain was implemented within a single jurisdiction (one justice famously stated that he couldn't define pornography, but he knows it when he sees it!), let alone for the deployment and use of this new technology soon. In short, .mail is unnecessary in our view, as well as general cultural change over time, causes any standards of "decency" to be able to afford the .MAIL adjunct to their domain? I have a .travel domain keep the domain. Unlike the other new TLD and the proposal do refer to the internet via their ISP, then they are a U.S. government entity) and insists on "branding" their site inappropriately as USPS.COM. Apparently, even governmental entities can become infested with Marketing Types.
