Russia Is Torn Over Push for Use of Cyrillic Web Domains

Quote:
MOSCOW — The Kremlin has long been irritated by the way the United States dominates the Internet, all the way down to the ban on using Cyrillic for Web addresses — even kremlin.ru has to be demeaningly rendered in English. The Russian government, as a result, is taking the lead in a landmark shift occurring around the world to allow domain names in languages with non-Latin alphabets.

Russians themselves, though, do not seem at all eager to follow.

Quote:
“Cyrillic domains are a major mistake because Latin symbols are the only symbols available on keyboards all over the world,” said Ilya V. Ponomarev, an opposition member in Russia’s Parliament who is a leading voice on technology.
Riiight. Leading voice on technology, my ass. Leading voice on 'I'm pissed cause I can't get my hands on any of that windfall of cash the ruling party will pocket from the .rf auctions'.

Quote:
“And there is a real concern that non-Latin domains are going to help governments that are not fully democratic, including the one in Russia, to better control their information space.”
Something that they can't already do with the existing cctlds...

Quote:
“This is a major headache for Russian companies,” said Aleksandr Gostev, an executive in Moscow at Kaspersky Lab, an Internet security company. “It is a wide new field for fraudsters.”
And, your company will gladly step in and protect these companies, after you scare them off with unfounded bullshit fraud hypotheses.

Bring Stalin back for a week to get rid of these mofos.

The comments are funnier than the article, btw.

Re: Russia Is Torn Over Push for Use of Cyrillic Web Domains

Rendered in "english" my ass.

The latin character set was derived from the Greek character set and has been in use for well over 2000 years, starting with and widespread by the Romans. It's used by nearly every country in Europe, as well as many other countries around the world.

Cyrillic character set wasn't an invention, either - it was also *heavily* derived from the Greek character set and still has a lot of similarity.

Re: Russia Is Torn Over Push for Use of Cyrillic Web Domains

What I loved about this article.

1. Total lack of insight into .com .net. Only .rf was covered.
2. Pushing the Soviet (communism) scare.
3. Yandex is still beating that same drum.
4. This is a "government" idea. Not a world wide Internet change.


Other than that the NY Times was right on. Right?

Guess we should send them traffic screenshots of our Russian.coms. lol.

Re: Russia Is Torn Over Push for Use of Cyrillic Web Domains

When they realize the .RU ascii domains they have been hoarding are now worthless, there will be a lot more articles.

Over 100 clicks a day is normal for Russian premium domains.

Yeah, unless you are holding a wad of cash to spend. And even then most are holding out for .rf to be released (I know I am). The traffic will only go up from here on out. :D

His hypocrisy knows no bounds does it? So this is a "do as I say, not as I do" sort of attitude or he's trying to scare everyone off and get the best names for himself.

What a jackass.

Astounding how many people do not know that most computers can be installed with nearly any foreign-language keyboard within a minute of so.

Re: Russia Is Torn Over Push for Use of Cyrillic Web Domains

I was reffering to an undeveloped domain name. I have a few premium russian IDN's but I don't get 100 clicks a day eventhough they are as premium as they can get. That is why i am wondering if there are any undeveloped names that do get over 100 clicks.
