Can we please dispense with the discussion of domain name
services on the NANOG list? I would personally prefer that
this discussion be taken elsewhere.

taking money for an essential service and trying to make a profit, is PURE
EVIL and goes against everything that I belive "the net" should be.  So
although I don't particularly like they way that Kashpureff is staging his
rebellion, I do believe in his cause.

I'm sick of paying the NIC to, and in reality I think Kashpureff's hack is
pretty elegant.  However, I disagree that capitalism is /pure evil/.  Once
upon a time the net was driven by research and academia, but that day has
passed.  The net as it stands now is in poor shape, and a with the latest
intense round of backhoe attacks and DNS problems the enormous amount of
capital invested in the internet will have to be protected.  This is when
those capitalist companies will finally start to hash out technologies
that make the internet more redundandt.  The problem and, I
believe, the solution lies with the root name servers.  Until people
accept and use more than the current InterNIC root server we won't be able
to announce any more domain name strategies.
