You haven't looked at PER, yet your preapred to make comments about FAKE
DNS and other things.  I can't believe you woudl be so bold.  So uneducated
and so unresearched.

Tony, it's a really NICE idea, but someone has to globally control the
highest possible level or no one will know where to get the information
about lower level domains from.

>>Yep, that's a great example.  But what do you pay for your ID.AU name?

I've sold over 5000 domain names. I have over 10,000 registered to my
servers.  I spend next to NO TIME supporting these names, the only cost if
Traffic and upgrades to the servers.  If they want support they pay a
consulting fee.

I'm sure MIT don't go round building zone files for domain name holders.

Problem is your not paying for it.  And nor is MIT.

Yes you did.  And in such case, if you don't need DN support, then why is a
corporate who will obviously EMPLPLOY very Technical people or consultants
like me?

I'm not sure what you mean.  But I'm sure I want you to explain.  Please.
