Do you think it's _NEW_ for me?

I'v want just to highlight this point... Here in Russia .ru sub-root name
servers just get funds from the *.ru fee's; and it's wonderful (not for me but
in principle) why . owners don't see at least 50% of the *. fee money.

And no doubt .com fee should not be 50$/year (for the NETSOL company which MUST
pay this fee).

// like to see the ruins of Internet in a few next years... just because some
// landlords catched the services which are mandatory for the Internet.
