Hmm. Let's recall what Eric said exactly:

> new york is a neustar property

I don't think that anyone is actually under the belief that Neustar owns
the city. Eric's opinion in regard to branding and TLDs is fair comment
(and one with which I, and I suspect others, are sympathetic).

That is unfortunate, and IMO clearly the loss of the city, its TLD, and the
public interest.
