    1. .ORG is no longer supported in the Linux-based
    boxes being deployed between consumers PCs and
    their broad-band, always-on, regulated transport.
    Wait until M$ removes it from Windows. V$ and M$
    want it to go away, like a bad dream. The ISOC
    does not have enough money to force M$ and V$
    to keep it.

    "lists" does not trigger a Reverse DNS look-up
    http://org.does-not-exist.lists the way .COM
    and .NET do.

    http://COM.does-not-exist.ORG will first get
    looked up as http://ORG.does-not-exist.COM.
    That does not appear to exist.

    Why would anyone want to be an "ICANN People" ?

    Why would anyone want to be an "ICANN People" ?

    Check out the IETF, people are walking away.
    Bob Kahn, one of the early pioneers is trying
    to get as far away from Vinton Cerf's creep
    shows as he can. Kahn actually has ethics and
    sees the level of corruption in the ISOC.

    The flip-side is of course that people like
    Klensin, Bradner, Baker, Vixie, Carpenter
    and the rest of the ISOC thugs are now
    helping to pay a real ubber-thug like
    Malamud to make the IETF part of the ISOC
    and even more corrupt.
