Re: [idn] Re: Chinese Domain Name Consortium (CDNC) Declaration
Dear Mr. Hoffman,
It it possible to set up a seperate mailing list for these types of
discussions? I joined this list to work on DEVELOPMENT, and it seems to me
that several members are abusing this forum.
My suggestion is that if anyone wants to continue to beat this dead horse,
they should do it off THIS list, and anyone that does not understand this
simple request should be BOUNCED.
Thanks for all your hard work!
