I like the spirit of your proposal, Domebase. However, if the authorized registrars
of .INFO are permitted to handle the LandRush II pre-registrations, as it has been
said before, this will only lead to closed lists by these registrars --- for their
employees and families.
-------> WHY would a registrar want to waste its time
trying to secure one of these 1,000+ .INFO domains for their customers for a SMALL
profit - when many of these domains are worth over $100,000.
(Also, witness the
track record of Afilias' accredited registrars during the Sunrise period - emailing
clients encouraging them to register without TMs, and also registering/"register
reserving" domains themselves. These are the folks we are suppose to TRUST during
LANDRUSH II?? God help us all...)
Afilias may have to handle the pre-registration
system itself for LandRush II to insure its TRUSTWORTHY registrars do not take advantage
of it, and therefore further tarnishing .INFO's fragile reputation. I do think some
sort of 'lottery' system is the fairest system for all individuals (and eliminates
the registrars ability to take advantage of this Lucrative LandRush II), however,
we will have to see how the .BIZ 'lottery' issue works out in the courts.
I have little faith in Afilias - Landrush II may be the biggest sham of them all...
hope we can indeed have that party, Domebase :)
