    Keep on truckin' New.net! Give ICANN ultimate sovereignty over jack squatt!

    I have a proposal of my own. We should seek to set-up an international organization to which the United States could cede control over all it's oil reserves. Then that organization, we'll call it "screwco," could work toward getting all other oil producing nations in the world to do the same. Once all the world's oil reserves are controlled by screwco, an organization whose main concern will be the best interests of consumers, oil distribution will be terribly efficient and prices will always be optimally low.

    Next, screwco could get, first the United States, then all other nuclear countries to surrender control of their respective nuclear stockpiles. What a beautiful world it would eventually be. All we need is another socialist-at-heart President like Bill Clinton, someone who is deceived by the subltely corrupt ideals of the left, to get the ball rolling. Tom Daschle or Hilary Clinton should fit the Bill.

    Your company is a joke. Instead of trying to play within the system you have tried to create something close to an "alternate root." But on one wants to buy your third & fourth level tlds. Your "position paper" on the Lynn plan was issued merely as a last ditch effort to drum up sales. Even you have to realize that the addition of Afilias, NeuStar/NeuLevel, .coop, .museum, .aero, .pro, etc have made you irrelevant. Corporations didn't like New.net last year, and they certainly aren't going to reach out to help you now.

    How many New.net domains truely exist- I'm willing to bet that there are less than .coop & .museum. And if there are: How many people own domains- not that many. New.net is and always will be a squatters paradise. An unregulated, unprotected collection of third & fourth level names. If you had been truely successful, trademark owners would have shot you down long ago for creating so many problems.

    Here's a little advice- either stop pretending you are a big player, or go out and buy a registry. My money says pigs will walk on the moon before New.net would be allowed to operate .org.

    No malicious intent here! Your "proposals to reform DNS governance" don't mean didly-squat. Get it? You just seem so pathetic worrying about internet governance when you and your staff must turn to customers for tech solutions to New.net's tech problems. When New.net was first launched, you claimed you didn't need ICANN. Now you're on the "change ICANN" bandwagon. It appears to us that now your success depends on ICANN working with you, and that ain't happening, Sherlock!

    No malicious intent, just some facts.
