    This is what happens when insiders are picked instead of truly qualified applicants.

    ICANN held a beauty contest in which the winners were determined ahead of time.

    They did it again for .ORG.

    They're going to do it again for 3 sponsored TLDs which will be .TRAVEL, .HEALTH and .UNION.

    In any other world, this would be a violation of United States Antitrust law. Why is this any different?

    Blah blah blah this is what happens when ICANN blah blah blah they suck blah blah blah they cheat blah blah blah evil blah blah blah they did it once and will do it again blah blah blah- ENOUGH!

    Dan's comment was about .NAME and Global Name Registry and how poorly THEY run .name. It had NOTHING to do with ICANN! I applaud Dan for taking some of his own initiative and trying to help .name. Nice effort. Maybe someone from .name can step up and explain what is going on over there in the UK. One more time, let's all say it together: this post was about .name, not about ICANN. This post was about .name, not about ICANN.

    Maybe they think they'll get more editorial by being useless than they will if they offer a perfect operation for something that most people could care less about.

    For those who think there's no market for new TLDs, let Dan's post be a lesson. Low registration numbers don't necessarily indicate a lack of market interest. The cause is just as likely to be some combination of poor execution, sub-standard service offerings and insufficient marketing.
