    Re: IOD's history from IANA to today
    by Anonymous on Friday July 13 2001, @05:29AM (#1285)

    * IANA establishes an application process.

    * IOD applies, is told to turn on its registry within the alternate root so as to demonstrate viability.

    * IOD does so.

    * IOD waits.

    * IOD waits.

    * IOD waits.

    * ICANN replaces IANA, assuming the contracts and responsibilities established by IANA.

    * ICANN talks about new gTLDs. And talks, and talks.

    * IOD continues operations, proving viability, ironing out any wrinkles that might exist, gaining years of experience.

    * ICANN initiates an application process.

    * IOD applies, pays $50,000, even though it previously applied to IANA.

    * Some of the ICANN directors, as well as the CEO, accuse IOD of setting up operations in advance of the application process.

    * A company called New.net come into existence, operating outside of ICANN's system. ICANN people make statements that implicitly sweep New.net and IOD in the same category--like trying to shove a square peg in a round hole.

    Does ICANN really believe they can rewrite recorded history with an accusation?

    Obviously IOD did not pay enough money

    Obviously IOD did not pay enough money

    $50,000 was the donation to the non-profit

    IOD should have done more entertaining
    The ICANN Board likes to be entertained

    There have been many cases where IOD played
    along with the process and lost. IOD is going to
    lose again. ICANN is just bleeding IOD now, by
    milking the market with .BIZ and .INFO and some
    other worthless TLDs.

    ICANN will wait until no one renews their .WEB
    names, and then pick up .WEB when it is abandoned.
