@ That's right Jim, because discussions about new international Top Level

I see that you have no problem taking what I wrote on inet-access
and using it to post over in "newdom". I guess your rules do not apply
to yourself. By the way, when you do that on the "newdom" list it
might be good to place the proper attributions on the writings.

Also, who are you to decide which "forums" things belong in? Are
you in charge of that sort of decision making in Canada?

@ Hey, it never hurts to ask. IANA people aren't the only ones that know
@ what is going on. They aren't a secret society you know. They do talk with
@ a lot of other people and I'm guessing that Bill Manning, a well known
@ IETF member, is one of those people.

Is the IANA membership list published anywhere...?

@ Most ISP's could care less about this because it will have minimal effect
