Thanks Mr. Amin, for a very nice start of the new Iranian dot Com. I wish you full success with this new endeavour.
As a frequent enjoyer and contributor of the outgoing IC, I also would like to share my appreciation of Mr. Javid's efforts. This site has been one of the most viewed Iranian websites outside Iran, and certainly the most democratic one.
The Iranian dot Com will be recorded in our literary history as perhaps the first democratic website, where almost everyone with a point of view (and some degree of civility) could comment, blog and post articles.
The role of Mr. Javid in creating this site, and the efforts of his co-owners and his Admins (including Foaad Khosmood and Nazy Kaviani) have been instrumental in IC's success. JJ's editorial efforts were also key in steering this ship through the very choppy waters of the typical Iranian discourse (i.e. shouting matches).
It is understandable that any editorial input comes with some degree of subjectivity, but JJ's steady hand was proven to be great with maneuvering the lefts and the rights of Iranians' multi-polar character ... while maintaining openness, and above all, fostering the growth of progressive thought.
It has been many good years, and again I wish for many even better years to come for both of you gentlemen, and the other good members of the IC family.
