ALL registrars? Says who? You? Well John, neither you nor CORE
have any such position or can accurately make any such claim.

Nor can CORE decide whom will be the registry or registrar for anything
as the have of late yet again.

And what legal mandate or point of law give CORE any such powers?Answer: NONE!
What CORENIC is now doing is paramount
to conspiracy or intent to commit a FRAUD!

Sure this is true. But CORE or CORENIC has no such authority to provide for
this. Neither does the IANA or the ISOC at this juncture, nor have they ever!

Yes, and a fraudulent one at that. They have no working gTLD's and noentry into
the Root. They are selling swamp gas at so much a POP. taking
advantage in a purposeful and fraudulent manner of less informed people.
They should be STOPPED!

Well you got mine Fella!

I sure can. They don't want to be involved in fraudulent activity, that is
Pretty easy and simple....
