    "Simon, you poser. You are the only one interested in New.net domains. No one esle cares, especially not ICANN"
    --> New.net threads get most comments.

    "Again, if it wanted to add a .shop it could, and there is nothing that New.net could do about it."
    --> Yes ICANN could do it and New.net could do nothing against it.
    But that is the differnce to .biz and .info if ICANN would introduce another .shop they would break the internet. Lets say 20 to 40 million Internet users get New.nets .shop and the others ICANNs .shop.

    "If you want to know what everyone elsee thinks of New.net's crappy plug in, read no further than ZDnet, which reported that people have been pretty upset when they download Kaaza and find out the New.net paid some money (what money!) to have their software bundled with the Kaaza code"
    --> You should always read the fine print. Kazaa is free...you get what you pay for...do you think the progrmmers of kazaa don't have to feed their families?
    New.nets plug-in is a minor "problem" if you compare it to Altnet (see press coverage):

    " MILLIONS of internet users who have downloaded the popular file-sharing software KaZaA are about to find themselves part of a worldwide system that uses their computers to work for big business."

    With KaZaA being downloaded at the rate of 2 million copies a week, millions of computers could become part of Altnet. It is understood users will have the opportunity to opt out of Altnet.


    As you can also see every week there are 2 million more computers with the New.net plug-in. Isn't that great! ;-)
