    You have a Serious Problem....

    I highly doubt ICANN will listen to me. They have their constinuency members, the DNSO, etc...

    I am someone with a vested interest in the internet, so that does qualify me as someone who can articulate an opinion....Personally I think those who post "anonymously" should not get to even voice an opinion, but this is a free country!

    If you have a problem with that I suggest you take it up with the ICANN board during their next meeting...

    Btw: I am not speaking for dot web or it's supporters here....I am speaking on behalf of those individuals who share my view.....

    You lack of basic understanding of how DNS works.

    Would you also be qualified to advise nuclear
    power plants because you use electricity ?

    Are people who work at nuclear power plants
    able to also advise on how to design nuclear weapons ?

    One of the reasons that ICANNwatch is such a good site for discussing problems with TLDs, ICANN, etc, is that readers are allowed to post their comments anonymously. I seriously doubt that this site would have as many diverse opinions contributing if anonymous posting were removed. So, even though you personally believe that people who post anonymously do not deserve an opinion, you should look at the issue from another perspective...ICANNwatch gives readers a chance to post their views, as stupid and inane as they may be, which allows different opinions and views to be debated in one place. Without this chance, there would be less people reading this site, and accordingly, less diverse views expressed on ICANNwatch.

    If you don't like having to deal with other opinions, don't post.
