I agree there can be a fine line between informing and alarming 
(scaring). This article is pumping the negative -- prices "shooting" up. 
But other thing that bothered me was that there was no mention of the 
fact that .org is really in a different category and serves the public 
interest in the internet world. People might not mind paying a few cents 
more if that goes towards a cause they believe in. That information was 
not part of this article.

So, more alarming than informing, IMHO.

That probably accounts for all those opposition letters we saw posted on the site that George Kirikos was referring to.
