Re: [IFWP] Commerce Committee Chair blasts ICANN

Martin and all,

  With all due respect Martin old boy, you seem to be missing the
point.  >;)  That being, that if ICANN is allowed to make or impose
a $1.00 charge for each registration of a domain name through one
or any of its registrars, than it has set a precedent.  That if done,
would give the DNSO or the ICANN board, to than make any "Adjustments"
to that $1.00 fee/tax at any time and for any amount, under any

  To allow this now is a slippery slope and all without stakeholder
approval.    This would be utter nonsense!
