### Number: 97 From: "Thermopoly" email@example.com> To: NTIADC40.NTIAHQ40(dns) Date: 7/9/97 4:14am Subject: proposed TLD changes I fully support allowing groups like AlterNIC, eDNS, uDNS, and any others that have the capability of providing enhanced domain name services. Nearly 90% of the people can already access http://www.per so why not open the process up to more. We should not allow one group, chosen by a cabal in some Swiss Chalet to control this valuable resource. ### Number: 98 From: "George Michaud, President/CEO" firstname.lastname@example.org> To: NTIADC40.NTIAHQ40(dns) Date: 7/9/97 5:52am Subject: Re: Domain Names in the Future... A Solution... I have the perfect solution. Let my Corporation handle all the same activities that InterNIC has done and we will give 50% of the funds to Cancer Research and we will pay the other 50% to our employees that will work hard to make it right. We are completely unbiased , have no motives at all and would do a wonderful job of managing it now and into the next century. We would like to see a cure for Cancer by 2001 at the latest. With each new Domain Name the customer also would receive a FREE Tape or CD of the most beautiful HarpMusic For Your Health in the world from the magical fingers of the late, great Harpist Lloyd Lindroth. This music is designed to reduce stress and tension at home or the work place for anyone. It works. Sincerely yours, George L.

Date: 7/9/97 7:34am Subject: Domain Scam I just dealt with a company, internic.com, which clipped me for an extra $150.00 or a total of $250.00 for domain registration of Windsock.com. I suppose I'm screwed but I thought I'd pass the info along. I saw no disclaimer until after I had paid, that suggested that they were not affliliated with interNIC.net. More info is available upon request.

Although there are a number of serious concerns that the Internet community has with the way the current registry system works (such as lack of competition and scarcity of TLDs), I believe that these issues are outside the government's purview. The government should no more regulate the domain name system than it should tell newspapers what brand of printing presses to use. That said, I believe it would be appropriate for the commerce department to *encourage* (not mandate) open competition in domain-name registries, and a vastly wider base of TLDs, to accomodate the many different companies with overlapping requests for domain names. The ".com" TLD is being burdened with every sort of commercial enterprise: it would make more sense to break this up into many different categories of commercial enterprise (such as communications industry).
