First you try and criticize them for not being open, and then when you
find you can get it through an open access means, you criticize them
for not being more closed about it?
Sheesh, Rick, grow up. Really.

Again, you are confusing the TLD operators with the ORSC. You
criticized the ORSC, and are now making it about the TLD operators who

been a failure, and will continue to be so. But that doesn't mean I
sponsor your type of publicly irresponsible and baseless attacks and
criticisms when the information was right in front of your face the
You want the .earth zone? Email ADNS, don't complain about the ORSC
