I renewed my .org for 10 years.
I'm hoping this incident will provide new energy to these efforts.
Now, even if browser support is all we need (it's not), how can we possibly explain this to users? Many, many links, bookmarks, and URLs would break along the way, causing confusion and harm.
In the meantime those of us with an .org domain have to look after ourselves. I have an .org domain since 2008 and my whole online identity is tied to it. In other words I'm a stakeholder.
Are you suggesting that I should give it up and support ... what exactly?
So yes, I'll be renewing for the maximum limit as well.
