This guy hates IDN's

http://forum.icann.org/lists/idn-tld.../msg00007.html

Why would you "fix" something that works?
If the Chinese, Arabs, a.s.o. want to find something using their
symbols, let their governments set up websites with URLs like "x.cn"
where they can search a directory for whatever they need (much like a
search engine). Anyone able to boot a PC and use an OS should be able
to punch five letters in the location bar of a web browser.


Respectfully,
Ion Iliescu

Sounds like Mr Iliescu hates "Johnny Foreigner" more than the nasty unstandard domains they are trying to invade the west with.

It is always the ones that can barely speak English themselves that are the most ardent.

Ion Iliescu - Funny, doesn't sound like a name that stepped off the Mayflower now does it?

His little rant was barely intelligible. There are so many things about people and languages he doesn't seem to understand.

It gets funnier the more you read it. "If they can't be bothered to learn English, let's restrict those damned foreigners to one domain name each, that'll teach 'em!"

This sounds like a Romanian name to me. I am also guessing that the guy is a frustrated, low paid, low-in-the-IT-hierarchy BOFH.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastard_Operator_From_Hell

I think we all know at least one of these guys. The BOFH belongs to a subculture within the IT field; even BOFH flock together. The scary part is if they manage to rise to positiions of authority or influence.

Or maybe he just understands irony very well.

Name is definitely Romanian. They had a president of that name I believe.

I take it you've never seen the Los Angeles River before... :p

Back on topic, this guy defines ignorance.

Re: This guy hates IDN's

ah well - my responses to these IDN forums on ICANN have still not been approved. Kind of ironic when Tina acts like the forums are inactive when it is her herself who is causing it. ;-)

How is that possible when spam posts are getting listed? Check out the threads for travel offers, translators, and such....

I can pretty much understand his thinking. The Romanians earn their living by working for European and American companies. I'm not surprised that the only language they think they need to know to make a living is English.
