    Let's not blow this out of proportion. It was an anonymous posting on a Greenpeace message board. The board carries the prominent statement (twice):
    Comments and articles posted on the Greenpeace Cyberactivist Community are owned by the person who posted them and do not necessarily represent the views of Greenpeace.
    Not unlike the ICANNWatch message board as it happens, so portraying this as an official Greenpeace position is well off the mark.

    Interestingly, David Hernand , CEO of new.net, has responded there to correct the error that new.net names go to the highest bidder (they don't, they have a fixed price), and offers to donate a Greenpeace.* new.net name.

    Nevertheless, while this clearly isn't a Greenpeace position, it may be a hint of things to come. As I said here in response to the Lynn roadmap, ICANN, to the extent that it is making itself a tool of big biz and big governments, is painting a target on itself for those who oppose some actions of big biz and big governments. There will probably come a time when they'll wish they hadn't done that. FWIW, I was one of the first members of Greenpeace. -g

    Old.net seems to be doing more things to appear relevant. It seems like about 6 months went by since we heard anything from those jokers. Lynn puts out a plan on ICANN restructuring and everyone comes out of the woodwork with an opinion. New.net is irrelevant, they know it. Don't be fooled.

    As for Greenpeace, maybe they should try working within the system to help keep ICANN from joining the "dark side" of government and big biz before it's too late, rather than pushing some alt root that we know will never work.
