English and spanish:

Adam,   ( yesterday ) we just having been discussed in our organization 
and I must say that I agree with  you,  referring to demonstrate against 
the U.S. intervention against rojadirecta.org domain .

Similarly, I remain concerned about the use of the gTLD ". org" for 
purposes other than those to be used by nonprofit organizations .
I have always preferred these gtld were more restrictive as we have seen 
in my organization  when we did pedophilia research , as is used. "org" 
with links to pornographic sites .  I think that
also we should be discussing, not just internet should be a place "fit 
for business' but also safe waterway, and is "trusted"part of the 
reliability must be based on that safeguard   of certain forms for the 
gTLDs. " . org". " . gov" " .mil " ". edu", which will provide certainty 
and where user safety is standing.
Adam, justamente fue tema de discusión en nuestra organización en el día 
de ayer y debo decir que coincido con lo expuesto por ti,  en referencia 
a manifestarnos en contra de la intervención de EEUU contra el dominio 
rojadirecta.org, por todo lo expresado oportunamente en tu mail.

Igualmente me sigue preocupando la utilización del gtld ".org" para 
otros fines que no sean los de ser utilizados por organizaciones sin 
fines de lucro, siempre he preferido que estos gtld fueran más 
restrictivos ya que hemos sido testigos en investigaciones sobre 
pedofilia que hemos realizado en el pasado en mi organización, de como 
se utiliza el ".org" con links a sitios pornográficos, creo que eso 
tambien tendríamos que estar discutiendo, no solamente internet debe de 
ser un lugar "Apto para los negocios" sino también, seguro, navegable, y 
que sea "confiable", parte de la confiabilidad se debe basar en que se 
resguarden ciertas formas para los gtld ".org", ".gov", " ".edu",etc,  
que le den certeza y seguridad al usuario en  donde esta parado.

*Saludos cordiales*
