My Focus :The ICANN "domain name Whois Study Report" all kinds of misleading claims

有关ICANN“域名实名率调查报告”的误导说法

[新闻主要说法]

这一周,有关“互联网名字与编号分配机构(ICANN)最新发布的一项调查报告显示,.COM、.NET、.ORG、.INFO、.BIZ等全球注册量最多的域名的注册信息实名率仅有23%。”的新闻报道不少,它还派生出:

《境外域名深陷管理漏洞危机:法律真空凸显》,《域名信息不实仲裁败诉多》,《中国注册境外域名者缘何损失惨重》等概念延伸性结论。



作为从1999年开始写域名产业新闻的媒体从业者,本人每年都发现不少这类带有误导公众、存在涉嫌“不正当竞争”倾向的并写文章纠正,这次也不例外,下面就对近来上述新闻报道主要说法谬误之处加以纠正。

What is an "Internet user" for those creating statistics?

We have all seen these statistics representing different aspects of the Internet economy.



Even basic numbers such as "Internet users" can oftentimes be misleading if we do not have a clear understanding of the definition of what they try to represent.
