1. Introduce a xxx topleveldomain for xxx-related sites. Xxx-related sites
then obligatorily HAVE to use www.theirname.xxx. Then, it's very easy for
companies to exclude much of the porn which resides on the internet. Since
Icann couldn't/wouldn't allow this xxx-domain, there is now going to be
more chaos on the internet, like the Turkey-initiative to uphold it's own
version of 'internet' with personalized tld-names.
2. Abolish the policy that domainnames can be used BEFORE payment is done.
MANY spammers use the 5-day free period and then just register another
free random name. Commercial interests of companies should and need to be
of less importance then the possibility for spammers to abuse the 5-day
period.
3. Verisign shoud be non-profit in every aspect. If not, then they can't
be trusted... by definition! In this respect, Icann should do everything
it can to push Verisign in that direction.
4. Icann itself should be non-profit in every aspect. Otherwise, THEIR
subjective opinion rules, or matters more than other opinions. Since Icann
is a US-organisation: as long as Icann is not a non-profit organisation,
US political (esp. the righthand (commercial) wing, since the righthand
wing is more opportunistic by definition) views are more prevelant than
they should be. As long as Icann is not a non-profit organisation, US
political views are more prevelant than political views of other
countries. By definition, that would be arrogant which in return results
in hate (and (terroristic) war) towards the US. Icann should attract
people of other countries to get more objective view of points.
