    by Anonymous on Saturday July 14 2001, @09:57AM (#1342)

    IOD seems to be trying to avoid a serious problem.
    IOD has not lived up to the expectations of the
    .WEB customers who paid money to IOD to be
    their advocates.

    IOD was rejected by ICANN.

    IOD has apparently not negotiated with ISPs to
    be included, as New.Net has done.

    Instead, IOD has pocketed a lot of money, with
    no follow through on behalf of the .WEB owners
    who placed their trust and confidence in IOD.

    Now, IOD seems to want to deflect all of the
    attention to ICANN.

    If ICANN looks closely, they may see that IOD
    has not helped the .WEB community. IOD has
    helped itself.

    Nice commentary....from an Anonymous poster....

    User #2940 Info
    I am here to say that Image Online Design has done everything it said it would do. It is on their FAQ page in plain english.

    Let me refresh you on some of the highlights:

    *They are working towards getting uploaded in the "A" root. (note: they submitted an application with a $50,000 application fee--I call that being serious)

    *They are working on new features for their registry and website (Their registry system is second to none and most recently they have added a discussion board to help answer questions and continue to foster community input---again, IOD is consensus based.

    Now is far as getting into the "A" root. That is up to ICANN. They submitted a superb application, that showed testing that they had done, showed that they were finanically backed (in the millions), and would provide these services at a realistic cost.

    I believe IOD painted a true picture in their application. I suggest everyone take a look at the new registrars (dot info and dot biz) prices....Then go take a look at the old applications you can readily find on ICANN disscussion board (archived 5 Nov 00).

    Again, with IOD's recent paper and their TLD application showing a vision for market changes, etc. I think you will find that they are more than capable of taking their registry into the "A" root.

    They are steady in my book, and anymore that is a company I will always support. Their positions NEVER change. Post from Jul 96

    So your dribble about them not living up to handling the dot web registry shows how little you know about Image Online Design AND its supporters.
