   There is a need for a nonbiased forum to discuss a
   meeting to create an organization for the management
   of Top Leve Domains. There are several other email
   lists [see below] dedicated to the general discussion 
   of TLDs but there is none specificly oriented with 
   creating a forum as specified in the NTIA White Paper.

   It is the hope of the list maintainer to provide
   a forum oriented in the gathering of consensus on
   a meeting place/time, its agenda, funding, and

   Yes, this list has a goal. The following is the main
   function of the NEWDOM list.

       participate, and will not go forward w/o the

A bit of history. 
    This list is dedicated to the topic of new TOP
    level Domains.  It has been a place for the discussion 
    of the addition of additional top level domains (TLDs) 
    like .com, .net, and .org.

    It is the hope of the list maintainer to provide an
    unbiased forum for the discussion of topics pertaining to
    the goal of adding additional TLDs to the IANA root nameservers.

    While the list maintainer has participated in various forum
    related to TLDs he will not remove or censor in any way the
    discussion on the NEWDOM list. The list maintainer wishes
    all to make their voice herd but, please  read/listen and respect
    others and their openions.

    Please note there other lists dedicated to discussions on
    TLDs namely:
