The only reason I would have supported rejecting the proposal is the 'morality' language related to offensive TLD's. .  

What's your take on that part of the process?

I wasn't that impressed with Dave's remarks, but I heard them rather 
than read them, which may have made a difference. I agree with your 
views on the substance and spirit of Susan's and Wendy's statements.

This -- the new GTLD process -- was originally scheduled to get to 
completion in 2003 and 2004 -- after the initial 2000 round.
