Re: [ga] Current Drafted Motion - Another Sort of Speculation?
I strongly agree with Chris' points regarding the difference between speculation and "tasting" and his clear illustration of how this loophole is used to dominate and control a whole industry that is supposed to be a service to the public by impartial registrars allowed to participate and profit from the sale of these address leases. (domains) Whether huge parties, as described by Chris, or smaller parties just out to make a fast dollar as I suspect the people who tried to sell me a .com probably were, it is manipulation of a bad policy to corrupt the intent that ICANN was set up to administer and ICANN should eliminate this provision, at least until they can determine some way to make it free of undue abuse. (I'm not at all sure this can be achieved!) Thank you , Chris, for your contribution! -Karl E. Peters
