    People really need to educate themselves. http://www.g8usa.gov [g8usa.gov]

    The G8 is really G8 plus 1 or G9, but it will remain as G8, as a secret shuffle takes place.

    The .EU is being added to the root, without any need for approval from ICANN.

    The G8 will remain in control of all TLDs that are 3 letters or less. The .USA TLD will lead the way in an open and free-market-based approach to naming and addressing. M$ and V$ are ready to supply the G8 with the needed technology and intend to dominate the market, for the benefit of their shareholders.

    Widely-held, public stock companies will be encouraged to continue building the G8 Name Space. Secret-Society and Communist/Socialist movements (such as ICANN) will be discouraged. Education programs for third-world countries, such as Australia, are clearly needed to explain how the .NET works.

    WOW, these good old boys play the same game that
    the Internet Society plays with the RIRs tossing
    the ball around to confuse people and to keep
    the game going.

    "During the Sea Island Summit, Ireland will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The Prime Minister of Ireland, His Excellency Bertie Ahern, T.D., will be attending the Sea Island Summit in his capacity as President of the Council of the European Union. The Presidency of the Council of the European Union rotates between member nations of the EU. Ireland took over the Presidency in January of 2004."
