Re: "Is ISOC 'severely harming' its reputation"

I suspect that ISOC cares a lot about its reputation, but please note that it's been living off .org registration revenue for many years, and the deal (if it closes) will effectively convert that revenue stream into an investment fund. ISOC will then live off the returns from that fund until IPv6 addresses run out.

Whether Ethos runs .org ethosically (sorry) is a separate question.
