这两封信是从RealNames公司的CEO Keith Teare的个人网站上发现的。毛伟在致盖茨的信中称，通用网址在中国获得了大量客户，微软的停止合作让他感到吃惊，他希望微软重新考虑这个决定；朱长勇在致盖茨的信中也称，万网有超过1万多个通用网址用户，像海尔这样的“中国GE”都位列其中，微软的决定让中国的这些客户感觉“被欺骗”，而万网更是有被“抢劫”的感觉(being robbed)。

Dear Mr. Bill Gates and Mr.Steve Ballmer,
I am Mao Wei, the director general of China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC).
From Oct.2001, Realnames began supporting CNNIC's keyword service from IE browser. This service was well received by the Chinese Internet users. Keyword technology is an advanced Internet address allocation technology which can make Chinese netizens quite easy to visit the Internet. In China, keyword has a great number of customers, including both registrantsand users, and it should have a wonderful future.
When I heard that Microsoft would terminate the aggreement with Realnames and stop supporting keyword service, I feel very surprise. I hope that Microsoft could reconsider its decision and go on to support the development and application of keywords.
I am Joseph Zhu, Vice President of HiChina Web Solutions Limited. HiChina is the largest web hosting company in China with more than 300,000 domain name and site hosting customers. With the sudden announcement of termination of MS contract with Realnames, our more than 10,000 Internet Keyword customers feel cheated and shortchanged. Haier Group, China's counterpart of GE, has written to us enquiring about the consequences of this termination. They have registered more than 20 Internet Keywords and spent much money promoting their usage. But Haier is just one of the victims. Many other businesses around China have also adopted the Internet Keyword as their online brand extensions. I think this has already caused a lot of bad publicity for Microsoft. It confirms the widespread perception that Microsoft wants to monoplize the Internet and you do not care about the interests of the average consumers, although personally I like your company very much.
Also you know, hundreds of thousands of Multilingual domain names (offered by Verisign) are resolving using Realname's service, which will come to an end in June. The users(visitors using MDNs), domain name registrants and domain name service providers like HiChina will feel being robbed.
Please give some more considerations to your prior decision. Thanks for your attention. Sincerely Joseph Zhu
