A week ago I wrote about the intense lobbying by advocates of .travel.
That lobbying has continued.
Every e-mail letter follows the same pattern, making the same assertions. It appears that a standard outline was created with each writter simply putting his or her own words into the pre-agreed upon structure.
Other similarities are that each letter is sent by a clerical person on behalf of a principal and each e-mail is packed with large attachments. One of these e-mails contained over 12 megabytes of attachments.
This kind of mindless lobbying, based on really nothing more than an assertion of self-importance, and packaged in obese e-mails that display not merely a lack of technical understanding but also a disdain for the resources of others on the net, does not sway me in favor of .travel. Indeed, I am swayed to the contrary.Posted by karl at May 29, 2003 11:33 AM
