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!
