Jon Postel would be so disappointed

For him DNS was a labour of love ...

For him ISOC acted for the internet users ... and I speak as an ex ISOC member of long standing.

This deal smells to high heaven, and reflcts no credit on ISOC at all. They sold their integrity (to ICANN) for the ORG registry, and are now selling the ORG registry for profit. A billion tax evaded bucks no less ... and I wonder where that will go.
