    .JOBS had hardly any comments on the ICANN web-site.

    Depending on how much grease is applied to the
    ICANN Machine, the lack of comments will be
    viewed as a lack of opposition and means that
    99.9% of the people support .JOBS and it will
    be selected in the current beauty pageant.

    If there is not enough grease applied, then
    the lack of comments will be translated into
    a plan of putting .JOBS on hold (like .WEB)
    until the next round, which of course never
    comes.

    The Registrars have made it clear that they do
    not want more TLDs. They make most of their
    money preying on people who forget to renew.
    They of course also make money on all of the
    services they now bundle with the .COM and .NET names. Those are the only two TLDs that
    really matter at this stage of the game. The
    ICANN regime has destroyed the market for new
    TLDs.

    The .JOBS application from Verisign will be tied
    up in the Verisign-ICANN litigation for years
    while Verisign continues to create distractions
    to prevent any competition for .COM. .COM does not stand for COMpetition.

    The only real competition will come from an entire
    new deployment, similar to the migration that took
    place from Broadcast TV to Cable TV.

    As some have pointed out, the current Internet
    is like watching ONLY Broadcast TV and ONLY the
    PBS channels. Most people are now bored with the
    offerings.

    The Triple Play, Walled-Gardens and Set-Top Boxes
    will make ICANN and the .ORG Society irrelevant.
    Third-world countries may continue to be wowed
    by the ICANN road show, but Americans have seen
    enough of that creep show.

    Vinton Cerf is actively telling people that TLDs
    with more than 3 letters do not work. He and
    Dave Crocker have been over in China selling them
    "the Party Line". It is interesting how the Chinese
    respond to the oppressive policies of the ISOC.

    .JOBS has 4 letters.

    ICANN should not even have accepted the application.
    They obviously liked the $50,000 donation.
    Communists love fools that fund them.
