I found it frustrating that I could not find any contrarian views on the proposed ENS Constitution among the current delegates. I personally find some of these proposals to be poorly thought through.
Name ownership shall not be infringed: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree
Rights of ownership are mandatory and should never be questioned or infringed upon.
Fees are primarily an incentive mechanism: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Disagree
Squatting and Speculators will not be put off by high fees they can afford and will allow for those with excessive funds to dominate the market and price actual users out of the market. Obviously, ENS should be able to charge fees to maintain and upgrade the service.
Income funds ENS and other public goods: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Disagree
I take issue with this very broad constitution item. The Community treasury is currently valued at 113810eth or almost half a billion dollars this is a lot of runway to maintain and improve the service and I believe the DAO should establish a diversification strategy for these funds to reduce systemic risk and provide passive income.
In my opinion, the second item of this clause is absurd. This is an incredibly broad statement that allows for funds to be redistributed anywhere for any purpose. This would allow a small number of people to benefit themselves in any number of ways. I can present any number of ideas to better distribute excess funds that can be put into a firm contract that requires no subjective interpretation. CODE IS LAW!
ENS Integrates with the global namespace: (Agree/Disagree/Comment) Agree
.com is an established top-level domain, anything other than agreeing with this would cause confusion. ENS benefits from integrating the legacy system quickly and easily, allowing it to subvert that system.
My web3 qualifications / skills:
My understanding and skills in the legacy system, protocols, and dev environment allow me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of both systems, giving me the experience to determine where to best allocate resources.
I’ve played around with Solidity enough to adapt and distribute a contract creating my own coin Doh 0x4CeE61FBD91192b3c3114d0fe1b845022775A7d9 replay to my post and I’ll send you some Doh. Just a faucet, not a bribe ;).
