Although, .Club Domains, LLC prefers prioritization based on the initial 
evaluation score, if ICANN proceeds with a lottery, we strongly believe that 
each applicant should have an opportunity to draw a number before applicants 
with multiple string applications draw their second number.  Once all 
applicants have had an opportunity to get a number, those applicants that have 
multiple registrations could pick another number. All applicants should be 
treated equally. By giving a vote for each string, it biases the "machine gun 
applicants" as it allows those that registered multiple applications to 
potentially launch multiple domains prior to a single applicant having the 
opportunity to do so. It is simply the law of numbers. If a single applicant 
chooses a number near the back of the line, that company will incur economic 
harm. From the beginning this process has biased large applicants as they were 
able to spread legal, research, and other costs amongst several names.
