Time for some remedial lessons in basic thinking:
Simon's logic is:
1. The POC chose not to get involved in a topic.
2. Therefore the POC is claimed to have made "a collective policy
decision to accept pre-sold domain names".
Try to imagine logic lessons in early math classes, and then try to imagine
passing the course with this sort of sloppy analysis.
