    ICANN sure will feel blue very soon

    Sure, it will be in print - but not their blueprint

    ICANN needs to get sued
    by Anonymous on Saturday June 22 2002, @12:25PM (#7380)
    I think the companies who weren't selected to run new top level domains should sue ICANN.

    Bret Fausett's blog site actually praises the domain tax.

    Bret has either started to work for ICANN, is being paid to say these things by a .ORG applicant, or has been murdered and his blog site taken over by Dave Crocker and Kent Crispin.

    Someone should drop by his house and make sure he's still alive.

    But seriously.

    What has happened to Bret Fausett? It's not just this one issue, but almost everything for the past few months.

    Bret has gone from an astute critic of ICANN to one of their most rabid supporters.

    Honestly, it's as if he's typing whatever Dave Crocker or Kent Crispin tell him to.

    Is it just me?

    I don't mind paying a tax on each domain I buy. However, ICANN must open the books so all can see the "need" rather than the "greed".

    Condition #2, get rid of the boardsquatters. I don't want my tax dollars paying for a boardsquatters business class airfare to Botswana, Ghana, Sinagpore, or Las Vegas.

    Condition #3, Hans Kraaijenbrink must go, period. I'd happily pay a huge tax to see him booted out on his ass.

    Condition #4, if I haven't already made myself clear, Hans Kraaijenbrink must go. What? I already said that? I guess I really mean it!
