Re: [ga] [MESSAGE FROM THE TLDA SECRETARY] The Top Level Domain Association is Now Accepting Membership Applications

Mr. Palmer;

If your mission statement is a reflection of the truth of the reason for your group, good luck to your group.  This is one of the most diffuse and vague statements I have ever read.  Where are you incorporated (or whatever) that you are allowed to be organized under such a meaningless charter?  What the heck is a TLD holder?  What do you consider a namespace, is it a name or an address?  Should ccTLD's be a member of your group?  Is your group so exclusive that only certain entities will be entitled to membership, like country clubs of the old South Africa? Application?

Please show me that my initial assumptions are wrong, because I believe very strongly in the correctness of some cause which promotes understanding of different roots.
