Re: Shamelessness is the new black
If it was decided that privatising .org was a Good Thing for the Internet
What on Earth do you mean? The TLD business was privatised in 1998 when the US Government forced the creation of ICANN. That's when .org was privatised, and when registering names became a competitive market -- whether you liked it or not (and I didn't, but facts are facts). After about 5 years, in 1983 .org was transferred to Public Interest Registry Inc. (which is itself a non-profit corporation, but there is no such restriction for other .org registrants).
If you actually read the information posted recently by pir.org, you might get a less distorted view of what is actually happening.
