    How do you know they weren't registrants? Those 90% of posts (I think it was a bit lower) made up about 1% of useful content there. I think Christopher Ambler and IOD were treated atrociously by ICANN, but their supporters didn't do them any favors either. -g

    How could pissing off ICANN while IOD's application was pending be considered good strategy? The IOD pre-registrations were an issue for ICANN, having numerous pre-registrants call attention to themselves wasn't good strategy either. Many of the IOD support messages were wacky and strident. Assuming the BoD saw them, they clearly conveyed a message that those holding some of the best generic names didn't have a clue about how to put up a website, they were speculators (which the ICANN BoD also doesn't like, rightly or wrongly). The IOD supporters would have been wiser to keep their heads down.

    Now it doesn't matter, ICANN won't be introducing any new TLDs any time soon, particularily after the multiple first rollout disasters. If IOD's .web is ever accepted by ICANN it will be many years away (barring some sort of court action which seems unlikely). Why IOD supporters still hang around promoting them is beyond me. It's over. -g
