Subject: How Applied vs. How Intended


I got the same email.  And yet read the following paragraphs from an Afilias email to registrars, which explains the TRUE intent of the additional 24-hour period:

"We have been made aware that many of you experienced problems connecting to the Registry at the close of the Sunrise Period.  As a result you may not have been able to submit all of your .INFO Sunrise registrations prior to the scheduled close.  In an effort to ensure fairness and equity to all of our registrars and their customers, Afilias will open the registry for additional Sunrise Period submissions for a limited time to accept Sunrise registration requests that were validly awaiting submission to Afilias by a registrar prior to 04:00 UTC on August 28th, 2001.

"It is important to emphasize that only registration requests that were pending submission to Afilias as of 4:00 am UTC on August 28th are eligible for this limited opportunity, and you will be asked to warrant that fact with respect to any requests submitted to Afilias during this extended period."

I can just imagine millions of Afilias-personnel scrupulously reviewing all these warranties.  Just like they did all the generic Sunrise registrations.
