The question is why ICANN would continue to employ those
who have so thoroughly botched the new TLD rollout.
Last year, there were
those who warned about the very scenario currently playing out with .info and .biz.
Fraud, lawsuits, gambling, registrar abuses, etc.
If I screwed up like that,
at my job, I'd be fired, pronto.
We already know there is no accountability from
the ICANN BoD, but aren't the underlings, within the ICANN Staff, responsible for
this mess? Why do they still have their jobs?
Waving the "speculators
are evil" flag, they opened the door for serious lawbreakers, thieves, bunko artists,
trademark infringers, con-artists, and yes, true cybersquatters. I'll also
add they did it at a snail's pace, late at every juncture.
So where is the
accountability? If this is such an "experiment", or "testbed", wouldn't those
who predicted things accurately be considered viable candidates for inclusion within
Mr. Harvard McLaughin couldn't foresee what is now happening?
If he did, and did nothing, then that's tragic. If he didn't forsee it, that's
almost as tragic.
Why does ICANN think that people who know lots of facts
about PPP and ISPs are the best candidates to usher in new TLDs? Does a Harvard
degree give you job security, even if you feck up?
