    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.

    Yes, if you write an interesting paper. Why not?

    We publish most of the coherently expressed ICANN-related material we're sent. We publish it whether we agree with it or not; the main tests being (for me at least) relevance, and that it will interest at least some of our readers. Publication of material authored by others doesn't mean we 'endorse' it -- how could it, when the editors of this site sometimes disagree among one another, and the site publishes things that disagree with each other? All it means is one of the editors of this site thought other people would be interested in it.

    Speaking purely personally, I'm more interested in discussing the merits of the issue than the motives of the speakers.

    Dear Mr. Anonymous,

    Thanks for taking time to make so many posts to this thread, all with the same malicious intent and without regard in any way to the merits of our proposals to reform DNS governance. Perhaps next time you could save space by grouping your comments in one post, so that others could spend more time actually addressing the substantive policy issues at stake than weeding through irrelevant garbage!

    As for your dispersions, I regret to inform you that the speculative reports of New.net's demise on what may be your favorite authoritative news site -- the "Happy Fun Slander Corner" on f*****company.com -- are not true. We just completed our first year (on March 5), and remain bullish about the future. We recently launched our new registry platform that will enable third-party registrars to sell our names, continue to add millions of new Internet users with access to New.net names each month, continue to sell many new names and take renewals of previously-registered names, and we have several new commercial relationships in the works. We fully intend to continue building our business and participating in the growth of this industry.

    As such, we also intend to continue trying to make significiant contributions to the development of public policy that affects the domain name industry, including ICANN related issues. We participate in ICANN processes in order to influence the development of policy within ICANN, and in other places where such policy is made. We do so because we disagree with the direction that ICANN has taken in the past and appears headed in the future. We issued a sigificant policy paper last June the elicited a very strong and lengthy response from the ICANN staff, which we regard as healthy debate. We hope that our latest paper similarly will stir significant debate about what type of ICANN reform should be implemented. Obviously, there are many persons who will find our proposals unacceptable, but I know that there also are many out there who consider Stuart Lynn's proposal unacceptable. For those of you who prefer to take anonymous pot-shots from the sidelines, I suggest that you might be more effective if you attempt to offer solutions in addition to criticism alone.

    David Hernand
    CEO, New.net
