    ".web would have gone to the other applicant"

    ".web would have gone to the other applicant"

    That was classic Vinton Cerf theater. You
    apparently were sucked into the charade.
    It is called good-guy bad-guy. Vinton Cerf
    loves to play the good-guy role. Look at
    the out-come, that is the real measure of

    Vinton Cerf carried out his orders to torpedo .WEB. He may have made it look like he loved
    it to death. If you recall, he lied and claimed
    it would be in the next-round in March 2001.
    That never happened. He had no intention of
    allowing that. You are watching a con-artist
    of the highest caliber. Look at the Worldcom/MCI
    con-job Vinton Cerf and Bernie Ebbers pulled
    off, that cost the U.S. billions.

    Just one of the many lies.

    http://www.gtld-mou.org/gtld-discuss/mail-archive/ 04513.html
    From: Dave Crocker / IMC
    "The statement was that we had repeatedly asked
    the community to choose a list and since it didn't, we had to develop one."

    Jon Postel had published a list with .WEB on it.
    IOD was NOT the first .WEB applicant on Jon
    Postel's list.

    The reason the number proposed was 7

    >been proposed by the Internet cabal, but no more. The reason for
    >limiting the number of top domains is simply to appease the legal

    >divisions of major international corporations; these companies don't

    The reason the number proposed was 7 rather than 30 is due to the concerns
    about trademark policing, yes. 30 was the original number developed by the
    DNS technical community.

    If you wish to conduct business with the FCC
    by Anonymous on Thursday May 12 2005, @06:34AM (#15209)

    FCC Registration

    If you wish to conduct business with the FCC, you must first register through the FCC's COmmission REgistration System (CORES). Upon registration, you will be assigned a FCC Registration Number (FRN). This number will be used to uniquely identify you in all transactions with the FCC.
