Bob

With all due respect your knowledge of how ccTLDs are run, managed and delegated is anything but accurate.

Patricio, on the other hand, actually works for a ccTLD, as does Chris

Michele

Hi Patricio,

Well, not exactly. Governments have chosen to give away or sell or designate others to run, their ccTLD, but initially it was theirs to do whatever they wanted, outside of ICANN's control. And they still are outside of ICANN's control. There have also been some issues after these choices were made, such as .pr, when the governments experienced seller's remorse.
