Why Won’t Kings Of Internet Use English?

Today ICANN, the organization that controls the Internet—it’s true! They are a non-profit that controls what domain names and suffixes may exist—announced some news: They will allow companies and individuals to create domains that end in .whatever. Like, “.ebay,” and “.nyc.” Or “.sluts.” But it’s almost impossible to learn this, because ICANN refuses to communicate in what the rest of the world would regard as recognizable language. Everything they produce reads like a manual for a microwave written in Tagalog and translated through Babelfish into Hebrew and then, lazily, popped into English.
