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: 1<=A<B<C<=2 n<=A<B<C<=m n>=A>B>C=>m 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.
