What? ICANN actually do anything?

With the stalling (again) of the seven deadl^H^H^H^H^Hnew TLD's 
(http://www.kuro5hin.org/?op=displaystory&sid=2001/3/3/145321/2991), I 
have very little fear that ICANN will ever actually do anything. So, 
whether or not they threaten to take away .org from everyone and go home 
and play with it alone in their room is pretty much irrelevant.

If we ignore them, maybe they'll go away.

BTW, look for www.kuro5hin.bbs on OpenNIC very soon.
