    It's the new gTLD evaluation and selection period all over again.

    Part of the process

    This is an iterative process, and also, as they say in law, adversarial.

    One can expect the bidders ranked low to wail and gnash their teeth and attack especially those parts of the evaluation process that ranked them low.

    One can also expect many of them to uncover real mistakes, real inconsistencies, or oversights that need to be corrected.

    The real proof of the pudding is in the revised evaluation report.

    Don't put much stock in the conclusory snippets from the responses put forward above. Some of them are on target, some of the are total B.S., others bear looking into.

    Bret Fausett's icann.blog points to comments on the .org redelegation by John Klensin (googled here). It is curious that the .org process seems to be generating even more criticism (at least from more authoritative sources) than the new TLD process. -g

    This doesn't amount to anything, except perhaps to indicate how seriously ICANN is taking this process, but I'll note that the IMS/ISC comments are labeled "Comments of Internet Mail Service and Internet Mail Consortium on .org Preliminary Evaluation Report".

    I find it hilarious that Global Name Registry have teamed up with The Red Cross - but at the same time their main financial backer is The Carlyle Group!

    The Carlyle Group is heavily into companies producing munitions.

    So we have Carlyle producing munitions, and The Red Cross cleaning up the mess. Great.

    Not convinced? Check out:
