    The ICANN comment period for .org just ended (was supposed to end) a few days ago, although a few late comments are still trickling in. I don't think anything will get decided for a couple of months. (needs to be a summary of public comments, and then maybe they'll revise the contract, and/or send it to the Board).

    A well written post, @GeorgeK - thank you!

    I can't believe that they and some have used the following argument seriously, and I agree entirely with your take on it.

    "ICANN and PIR’s argument is silly, arguing that simply allowing one’s domain name to be repossessed, just like a home owner walking away from a mortgage contract with bad terms by defaulting on the loan, is an acceptable “compromise.” It’s simply not. It’s really insulting people’s intelligence to even suggest that."

    Good article. I've been thinking of making all my domain names 10years instead of 1yr
