the rootops aren't complaining.  and speaking for ISC f-root, we prefer our
independent sponsorship model vs. any single-party control over our funding
or footprint.  root ops should be "of, by, and for the internet community".

see <http://www.root-servers.org/> for more information on who the rootops
are and where the servers are.  any organization who can consider sponsoring
one or more root name servers should contact any root server operator to
find out what's possible.
