    IOD does not own .WEB

    IOD has failed to develop .WEB

    The wholesale, registry pricing, for names under
    a TLD is rapidly approaching $5 per year or lower.

    Quit looking for the second coming of .com. It's not going to come. .web could come and go and your .web domains wouldn't make you any richer than you are now.

    Get off the wetdreams...Devote your time to something that's really going to make you money.

    ICANN is not going to deal with any more new TLDs.

    Didn't you notice the Minutes from the MDR meeting ?

    The New TLD Committee was not mentioned
    in future plans.

    .WEB is on its own. Affilias, New.Net, Verisign
    or Neustar will have to pick it up. Those are
    the companies now in competition. The
    U.S. Government is out of it.

    .WEB's mistake was they did not cut anyone else
    in for a piece of the pie.

    All of the other companies cut people in for some
    of the action.

    .WEB was greedy and ICANN said no.

    It was classic good-guy / bad-guy

    Vint Cerf played the good-guy
    Hans Kratcherberger played the bad-guy

    They both knew that IOD would be rejected
    they just made a show of it

    Since the ICANN Board, clearly made an extensive
    study, paid lots of experts, blah blah blah

    and after all that .WEB was not selected

    It should be clear there was no consensus and
    IOD has to accept the decision because they
    were working in the system.

    New.Net does not fit the package, according to
    ICANN. That means that New.Net can go straight
    to the U.S. Government and get entered into the
    A-root.

    The .WEB people never change, when faced with
    the reality of the situation, they have done the
    same thing for years, they say they do not like
    that situation and proceed to describe the path
    they like, even though that path will never exist.

    Yes, all people want to own a TLD and have people
    blindly pay them billions of dollars per year for
    doing practically nothing and most importantly
    without having to give a cent to anyone but
    one or two owners. Keep dreaming, it will not
    happen, especially now that domain names are
    largely worthless.

    IOD took the cheap path and lost. They did not
    have a management team or the "right" people
    on their payroll. It is that simple. They lost.
    It happens in the Olympic city selections and
    the major league baseball deals. IOD refused to
    face that reality. Look at all the people who
    were paid off in the ICANN process. Each of the
    TLDs has some special, behind the scenes story.
    It was a politicial process and IOD chose to
    believe it was technical. Go look in all the people's
    bank accounts. How do you think all these people
    are flying first class around the world everywhere ?

    Why is this so hard to understand ?
