    so the following are not stats? Just verifiable numbers? If so which numbers do you question? Lets not quibble about how to measure population either. The DUM numbers are real; I didn’t make them up.

    • DENIC, who operates the ccTLD in Germany (pop 83M), manages 17,533,796 domains with a staff of about 110.
    • Belgium (pop 12 m) manages 1,744,450 domains with a staff of about 35
    • Netherlands (pop 18 M), a world class ccTLD leader, manages 6,304,312 domains.
    • With over 153 million ccTLD domains registered worldwide, Canada – CIRA – does not rank in the top 10!

    While you assert that CIRA is well run, is that evidence based or “hope” (aspirational) based? How do you really know?

    While we had an other increase do you care/know how many times the CEO salary has increased and what it is? Do you know if your fees (mine as well) are cross subsidizing acquisition of “.ie, kiwi etc.? Or travel costs, no doubt always flying business class?
