According to reports on Twitter, Paul Thurrott was the person who sent an email to ICANN in response to the thread started by a neowin member:

Unfortunately, although Paul had agreed to an interview regarding the matter, he pulled out at the last minute.

Where?

 

That doesn't seem right. Why would he email ICANN?

 

EDIT: I just saw this was in Jokes. :/

This forum needs a distinct color scheme or something. I visit threads almost exclusively via the front page so I don't see which forum I'm going to when I click.

I think there should be a warwagong picture in between every posts in the Jokes and funny stuff forum.

It would've been even more shocking if you would've said Andrea Borman or Sinofsky.

Agreed.  I'd recommend a black background with black text.

No need, a [TAG] is required for all jokes so normally this wouldnt work, the OP broke the forum rules by excluding the tag..

 

edit - nm, apparently the TAG doesnt show on the front page.. perhaps that can be added?

perhaps a mod for this section should tag it as joke so it has joke written near the title.

better yet, the bg colors should be neon and flashing and a text marquee should say Jokes and Funny Stuff!

I don't think Paul's the sort of person that would take down an entire site just because of someone's opinion. :laugh:
