Re: Thank you, Boris …

Well The Register has always adopted a tabloid type format so I suspect your attempt at a slight fails somewhat...

The problem with EURid's current stance is that it has never really reached that wide an audience after its initial land rush in the heady days when people thought multiple DNS names were important (http://research.domaintools.com/statistics/tld-counts/) - coming up with arbitrary rules about usage of their domains may provide them with the rude awakening that they're just not relevant outside of EU institutions. Other than brand protection to prevent malicious use of domains, there are few technical reasons for having an .eu registration as end users access sites largely via search engines rather than entering web addresses.

Which is all good and well until someone remembers that other TLD's tend to be self-financing rather than a poorly run, expensive, beauracratic DNS service for EU organisations.
