    Apparently, IOD is too cheap to PAY to be included
    in the root servers. The European root servers are
    going to be expensive. Check the price of a meal
    in Paris or Geneva. Nothing moves in Europe without
    a lot of grease.

    IOD now wants to get cozy with ICANN, to avoid
    paying. IOD thinks their $50,000 is still in play.

    IOD is forgetting that ICANN would require tens
    of millions of dollars in backing.

    In the end, IOD will likely lose .WEB to one of
    the well-financed ICANN Registrars, who are now
    trying to assemble a TLD package to compete
    with New.Net.

    A post in support of IOD and its .WEB

    I didn't realize you were privy to IOD's financial health! While I would question your belief that 'ICANN would require tens of millions of dollars in backing', I will point out that IOD has stated their organization has an open line of credit from a major financial institution.

    However, this is not a case of IOD's ability to generate the necessary funds to satiate ICANN's ill-concieved selection criteria. Bravo, IOD! Your Public Policy Statement was welcome, and we all look forward to the day when YOUR .web graces the A-root!

    Tell me somthing...ISN'T this a thread about IODs
    by Anonymous on Friday July 13 2001, @03:18PM (#1313)
    I think it's hillarious that New.net has somehow creeped it's way into this discussion. The topic being discussed is about IOD's CLARIFICATION PAPER. They believe in a concept that is healthy, and will keep the viability of the internet going for years to come. A New.net model blows that out of the water. Oh, and if you think New.net is not trying to cozy up to ICANN, then you obviously missed the most recent ICANN meetings this past June..... SO if you really want to discuss something, explain to me how a concept like New.net will work, as opposed to what Image Online Design is purporting......If you don't care to talk about that even....then I would suggest you go to the after market discussion boards....
