Registrars are not operating in a 'free' market. They are reselling domain 
names on behalf of the government. If you want a operate in a free market, 
then create a product of your own and see if the m,arket wants to pay your 
price, don't resell for the government.

According to your logic, Motor Vehicle registrations could be set at $10,000 
a year ! and yes we would have to pay it.  You cant buy a domain name thru 
anyone else but a government appointed Registrar just as you cant Register a 
car from a non government appointed registration branch. It is therefore not 
a 'free market' In fact AUDA should run ad's with data similiar to what is 
at "what's in a name"

I already have in previous posts.

Sorry, most don't agree with your view, so really nothing to see here ..
