ET AL- BECAUSE i DON'T OWN A DOMAIN NAME i CAN'T PARTICIPATE OR HAVE A SAY-
You mean if tomorrow , i want to buy a domain name, i have to ask AOLs
permission ( as an example) ?
We love Dictatorships- but that what his business is all about - lets all bow

The individual is distinct by his/her E-mail address that he/she uses to
register his or herself as a member. The same goes for a company by their
