RE: .org is a public trust

Historical Context

At the end of the bidding process, the following 632 comments of support were accounted for at our web site. In addition to these comments, 389 supporters added a little blue dot to their web sites. Of course, Googilla kept tracking the dot long after the final tally.

The absurdity of having a TLD designated for non-profit organizations run by a for-profit company is too silly even for Monty Python. Let .org be run by the people who designed DNS in the first place. --Troy

the .org domain is _the_ domain to be managed by a non-profit organisation!

We must keep the capitalist sharks from the domain that is made for the non-profit organizations. Alive the freedom, and the right of choice of the people! 8-)

As the operator of several name servers and the owner, administrator, and/or technical contact for dozens of .org domains, I couldn't care less whether the operator of the .org registry "makes a profit". I do care a great deal whether they run their service competently and in the spirit of a public trust. For that reason, I support IMS/ISC in their bid.

Non-profit is always good. Why? Because people must understand that not everything in life is about profit. Profit is important if you want to run a business, but not everything in life is a business. There are other values that are to be rated higher than capitalism.

.org should be run by a not-for-profit, and this is the best one I've seen so far.

I strongly believe that .org MUST remain a public trust and be maintained by a non-profit entity. As for expertise, the maintainer of BIND might be adequately qualified.
