And even EDU isn't enforced completely. It's supposed to be for
four-year institutions ONLY, yet you have Cuyahoga Community College
in my hometown -- -- and Victor Valley College and Barstow
College in this area -- and All three are
two-year community colleges. Internet & New Media Services,

Apple Valley, California Nothing scares me anymore. I have three kids.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Do you know who the .EDU registrar is?
I suppose I could try 'whois .edu' and try to see how it resolves.
Reason I ask is maybe someone will decide to start a sex education
course on the internet and ICANN, out of their deep respect for that
kind of website (after all, there are so many sex sites on the net
now) will suggest putting them in .edu . PAT]
