i'm so mad about this. it's shady as hell

ICANN? more like ICANN't even hahaha am i right


@nev ICANN has been about nothing more than making its own people rich off of artificial scarcity for a long time.

It's so corrupt it's ridiculous.

@nev Ethos: putting forth arguments to attempt to convince the audience that the subject has high moral character. Also, the prevailing spirit of an era.

The sale and decisions leading up to it might fit one definition better than the other.

@nev I own <mylastname>.org, and have since before .org domains were only given to verified nonprofits. This will likely be the change that makes me give it up.
