Can I just give a big pat on the back to everyone who took the time to contribute to the direct.uk debate, and consequently to shaping Nominet's decision. Take a bow. You deserve it. Regardless of individual views on the process or feelings on the final outcome (we will doubtless still be digesting the mountain of material Nominet have published weeks from now) this has been a fraught, fractious, drawn-out slog of a journey, more than 13 months from start to finish... The difference between V1 and Nominet's final proposal is like night and day - and that difference is down to a sustained collective effort by hundreds if not thousands of people.
