It's 07:20 JST, Sunday morning. Assuming you're on the East Coast, you're
doing a lot of thinking for a Saturday evening;-)
Each time I answer a piece of mail, here's another from you. I'm glad
someone is thinking about this important funding matter.
Would you think A<B<C or A>B>C? How about:
We had a similar set of questions in CORE early on. The question was:
100% Fixed monthly fee
50% fixed monthly fee+50% charge per registration
100% charge per registration
The arguments were (from one extreme to the other) 1. "you can buy a
million minutes of 800 time" for a small fee per minute 2. we need to
preserve regional diversity and the smaller registrars in countries with
less developed Internet usage.
The result was overwhelmingly in favor of a charge per registration, no
fixed monthly fee. I think only three members voted for 100% funding by
fixed monthly fee.
