Re: [ga] Official gTLD Statement on the Wait List Service
Danny and all assembly members,
I believe that the two reasons why the Registry constituency
stated by Jeff.Neuman were very minor reason, but good ones
none the less for why WLS should not be adopted as a
standard. In light of recent security concerns from the
Homeland Security department reporting directly to the
president, (See article:http://news.com.com/2100-1023-942686.html)
as partial refrence, and the upcoming House hearing regarding
two recent house sponsored bills regarding "Cybersecurity"
WLS represents a direct avenue for Terrorists to use as
a tool for their many and varied attempts to cause problems
with the infrastructure and fabric of the DNS.
Therefor I would strongly suggest that WLS be either
dismissed entirely or be tabled for later revamping and
than reconsidered after some more serious consideration.
