Mike Roberts quote below does not say what you say above, and your 
claim that it does takes the prize for the most creative deliberate 
misreading I have seen in a long time.

Let's see.  You have stated that Iperdome suspended operations
because of Mr Robert's above statement.  

That is, the statement "one of the clear antecedent requirements ... 
is that we don't make what appears to be a monopoly profit grant" was
sufficient to, for practical purposes, cause you to close down

That is, you agree that delegating the .PER TLD to Iperdome as you
would like would be a "a monopoly profit grant". 

Thank you for clarifying that.  This is the point that many of us 
have been making for a couple of years now.

We can further deduce that you believe that your business could not
survive without a "monopoly profit grant."

That is, that your business is not competitive.

Thanks for finally admitting that, as well.
