      There is no need to use that kind of language Mr. Gill.  This is a public forum and everyone's views should be treated with respect even if you don't agree with them. 

You are wrong about the risks pre-registrants knew when they paid for the pre-requests.  The main risk was that the name could be taken by a bona fide trademark holder not a SUNRISE FRAUDSTER.  If pre-registrants knews that Afilias were not going to filter out fraud Sunrise registrations then many would not have pre-registered so many generic names in first place!

I know you are concerned about closed lists some Afilias Registars may have but there is no guarantee that those registrars allowing open pre-registration do not have a closed lists of their own which they may submit as their first queue of names.
