From: Karaitiana For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Maori Televison You said: “However, MTS does have a website - but believe it or not, it's a dot-com rather than a dot-co-dot-nz. So much for preserving your national identity? “ This is a classic example of the need for the new (approved) .maori.nz 2ndLevel Domain. There is no national identity issues here by using a .com . It is just a sign of our inadequate 2nd Level Domain structure for an official bilingual country that is also multi cultural. Perhaps if we already had .maori.nz MTS would have used it. From: Adam For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Maori TV I'm afraid I have to disagree with your last correspondent with the regard for a second level domain. This is again another example of creatating a two class society where we will become the Canada of the south pacific. The .co.nz represents New Zealand, one nation for one people. Is Maori TV a waste of money? Of course it is. It has cost millions of dollars that this country can ill afford and for what? Maori TV will fail without further investment from government because of very low ratings it will attract. However we will have governments that will pour money into this station because one can not be seen to be a racist can one. Of course that will be the cry if the money is stopped.Hit Reload For Latest Comments
