Re: [alac] [fwd] [council] re proposed resolution for issues report on deleted names (from: email@example.com)
Thanks for forwarding, It seems far from neutral to me. I would have to have more data to START from the premise that "the re-selling of certain deleted or expiring names has lead to unforeseen strains on the ability of registries and registrars to manage their business efficiently" and that it has affected the "service level provided to users and the meaning of ICANN accredited as it applies to registrars."
I think expired domain names want to be free- meaning expired ones should go back to the public to be re-purchased. I certainly don't think their former registrars have any right at all to auction them and keep the spoils. I'm sure there's a way to auction them through a disinterested third party. I agree that resarch should be done and a report produced.
