As a holder of a single .org domain name, I do not support the removal of
the price cap provisions from the renewal of the .org gTLD agreement. These
provisions which limited the price of registrations and allowable price
increases for registrations, are important to allowing small organizations,
especially non-profit charity organizations to exist on the Internet. Many
of these organizations have long-held .org domain names and a substantial
percentage of their meager funding is tied to donors being able to find
them via those domains. The massive potential price increases (as opposed
to the moderate ones that are already possible) would prohibit smaller
organizations and personal projects from having a place on the Internet.

This is an anti-competitive practice aimed squarely at eliminating smaller
organizations and non-profits from having a presence on the Internet.
