Subject: Why I still favour Domebase



Whichever route is taken (and thats up to Afilias in the end!) I think one principle is over-riding:

The main group of people who have suffered a major injustice (and de facto fraud) are the Landrush pre-registrants.

I think as a matter of justice, it is important that the final resolution protects the 95% who have lost out and been defrauded EVEN IF there is a 5% group who face difficulties applying in the last days.

Put another way, I don't think that measures to protect 5% should be introduced, if the result is to disenfranchise the 95%.

I think it is pretty clear that the bulk of Landrush applicants have applied already, and indeed, anyone applying for Landrush now would have to need their heads examining!

Therefore, if as many safeguards as possible can be put in place, and with simplicity, then I still favour the Domebase proposal:

ALL names to be available at Landrush.
If randomised winner gets a name already Trademarked, then that name is reserved for the winner if a successful challenge ensues.

It is simplicity and it is just.
