William,

I can assure you I am not a "troll".  As most people know, I am the ex-CTO
(note, "ex") of New.Net. Come to think of it that might cause you to
classify me as a "troll" -- but that would be your choice, I guess.

So, an increase in support costs is "instability"? I am not sure I get that
...

Tim

Based on the email address, this was probably a troll.

    We're Sorry, but you can no longer log in via the technologist.com
hostname.

    Please log in at http://www.iname.com from now on.

    We regret any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for
stopping by.

Anyway, the fact that some of us now block BGP acceptance for the
new.net blocks, because it causes us support costs, would be an
argument that the Internet is less "stable".

Yes, I was asking specifically about "stability" (with a request that
someone perhaps try to explain what that might mean other than a term to
scare people with) rather than "compatibility".  BTW, I don't think
".house"
is a New.net TLD ;-)
