||percentage of registrar reserved vs. sunrise squatters
Statistics are not everything, but I do have
some stats on registrar reserved vs. sunrise squatters from my study of over 11,000
names. I found 2.4% of names were registrar reserved, as compared to 15-25%
sunrise squatters (started out around 50% before manual review chopped that in half).
I also searched for names that were reserved by registrars not using "registrar reserved"
-- and did not find very many at all. Based on these stats, I would guess that
the problem (from the perspective of a Land Rush pre-registrant or the general public)
of sunrise squatters is an order of magnitude larger than that of registrar reserved
names. As I mentioned earlier, I also think that it is clear that sunrise squatting
is wrong, but honest folks may have differing opinions on the issue of registrar
