I will give it a go.
You can then rubbish my opinion ;-)
>Afilias no doubt
will challenge facially defective registrations...
Only because of actions, like
those of the good people on this forum - who raised the alarm about the corruption.
the easy part and will make for great PR.
That is called - trying to save face.
domains should be returned to the public pool and I expect most, if not all, will.
corrupt people running the system will earmark the very best ones for themselves

>It cleverly appears, in a sense, to
have extended the sunrise period protections for legit trademark holders with the
pretenders/squatters acting as place-holders for them.
I am very perceptive and
can tell - You are Afilias Public Relations Officer aren't you?
>It's the more
inventive registrations involving allegedly make-believe trademarks in banana republics
that will be very tough to ferret out.
If you cannot check registrations - what

Afilias and certain Registrars have done more to prevent many of the facially defective
applications from reaching registration?....would seem so...

THE REASON IS: LESS CHECKS = MORE MONEY
those who submitted facially defective applications on purpose are going to be the
No - sorry, but I do not think you understand, at all.
losers - are the ones that have been ripped off by the fraud.
Most in Sunrise and
every single one of those in Landrush.
The ultimate losers? Every one of us that
have been lied to.
>I'm not losing any sleep over it.
No - I really do not
suppose you are.
Ignorance is bliss.
Your turn Vera :-)
