The DNS system as it now exists is just a way to extort money from people who needs domain names.
@liw I agree, but I can't really see how to fix it without having a system where every domain name gets hoovered up for no reason.
Step 1 would be to burn ICANN to the ground I guess. Their back room deals seem to be the root cause of the problem.
In many cases you can use subdomains off of ones dns-hosted on afraid.org without fee.
