    I thought New.net ran out of cash in April 2001. Recently their president quit. I don't see how they still exist. Does anyone even buy their third & fourth level domains? Why bother?

    Icannwatch are suckers for giving New.net a free plug. That stupid paper was released coincidentally at the time when renewals are now due for New.net's subdomains.

    If you believe what you read at www.fuckedcompany.com, New.net won't be writing ANY papers soon, maybe except Chapter 11 papers.

    Icannwatch is only helping New.net pork their customers who read this "paper" at Icannwatch, take it seriously, plunk down renewal money, only to be screwed later.

    What a stupid move from academia.

    How could ICANNWATCH be stupid enough not to see through this piece of garbage by New.net.

    Hey ICANNWATCH, will you give my business free advertising too?

    How silly.

    Instead of worrying about ICANN, New.net should worry about providing a real email solution to its customers, as well as fixing all the other problems.

    Don't worry about ICANN. ICANN will be around long after New.net goes under and screws the suckers that renew there.

    Maybe New.net should write papers instead of trying to run a registry.

    Though I don't totally agree with its premises, the New.net paper is well written, analyzed, and researched, and provides excellent points for debate.

    For all the criticism New.net receives, at least it attempts to take an active role in shaping the policy and governance of its industry. Smart business move. Good for the Internet community.

    How can you take New.net seriously, when no one else will. The government is forcing ICANN to create a .kids domain. Even though New.net already has a .kids domain, one year old, nobody even considered using New.net's .kids. Instead, .kids will be .kids.us.

    New.net missed the boat here, a golden opportunity. New.net was too worried about creating an image rather than a real registry. Instead of making sure New.net was considered for .kids, it was fucking around, scrambling to work damage control after the rumors at FuckedCompany.com.

    But then again, when you're trying to scrape together payroll, you have little money for email solutions, other tech problems, etc.

    Any company stupid enough to think the world would take them seriously trying to manage 90 TLDs, doesn't deserve recognition from the likes of ICANNWatch.

    Some of the dumbest moves come from the world of scholars. And when you mix academia with law, watch out for flying mistakes.
