"Anybody familiar with the backstory behind this knows that policies like this were more about ICANN appeasing the Intellectual Property lobbies so they could roll out their precious new cashcows^w^w new TLDs than stopping cybercrime or holding anybody accountable for anything."

What to do about bad Responsive design? Short answer: Design for the device. I get to use really good mobile apps – they are clean, easy to read, easy to use. (Examples abound. Orbitz is a handy one). Whoever designed those understood the medium, its affordances and limitation, and designed for ...
