&#167;This is rubbish (ie: 100% false), which is perhaps not surprising,
&#167;considering the source of that quoted line.

As far as I know, the people delegated the 2-letter TLDs are not charged
anything at the present time. People should keep in mind that some
of the 2-letter TLDs were created as a way around the $50 NSI fee. This
helped to keep the complaints to a minimum when charging was suggested
by NSI and approved by the NSF back in 1995.

Some of the 2-letter TLDs are used by private people to promote their
web design businesses and by other people to lord over some virtual
fiefdom. That has caused people to move to the .COM and .NET TLDs.
This will all soon change. The "implosive forces" are now bringing all of
these people to trial in the world court of opinion. July 4, 1998 was the
deadline set for that several years ago. It looks like people are going
to make it.

Fortunately, people at the leading edge, working with the "explosive forces",
do not really have to be concerned too much with the melt-down that is
occurring in the core IPv4/6 transport world. About all they have to do is
stand back and watch the fireworks at this point in time. They are going
to be spectacular. Stay tuned...
