    Dot info sucks....dot info's ceo...who cares? The reference to "New.net servers do not even reference .WEB", tells me that you are just coming on the scene hoping to make a quick buck. Sorry, but when you make comments like these your credibility is shattered.

    Image Online Design will prove to the world, that their registry is reflective of all people. Not just Americans. Image Online Design had supporters writing in from all around the world during the first round selection. You know why? They would like to engage in commerce with their dot web TLDs....The Americans have control of dot com. Dot web through IOD is more international, and spread out, to business owners. Not peddlers...

    Sorry to sound so crass, but I hate it when the "buying and selling" of domains has to always enter a discussion when dot web is brought up. Image Online Design has fostered a community that attracts business (excite.web), and people from academia, nonprofits, lawyers, doctors, regular people, you name it.....ICANN would have a hard time trying to allow anyone else to enter a dot web in the "A" root......

    I have a few .web domains some people would think I'd be crazy NOT to sell if they are entered into the main root.

    . . . But I have to tell you--I did not register them with reselling in mind, and have every intention of developing them--a couple as part of a business venture, a couple at non-profit.

    All will serve the Netizen.

    So when I hear stories that IOD registrants are name-sitting, it makes me sick. I have come to know many .web registrants over the past few years and they all feel the same way.
