||Afilias need to say something.........
Just how serious is this closed
lists issue? I have checked the Websites of almost all Afilias authorized registrars.
Very small percentage of them are not accepting pre-registrations. I
feel this is a small issue in comparison to sunrise fraud.
proposal after proposal is not going to make any difference if Afilias is unwilling
to listen. Original DomeBase proposal (based on crs idea) is workable and common
sense approach. If Afilias have something different in their mind then they
should come out and give some indication of how they are going to deal with the issue.
I don't know about legal issues but Afilias have moral obligation towards pre-registrants.
In the absence of clarity from Afilias, just how registrars will handle hundreds
of thousand of pre-registrations for the names which have been taken in sunrise period.
Are they supposed to hold back these registrations to be submitted later in so called
landrush II or send all pre-registrations to Afilias and Afilias would maintain the
database of unsuccessful pre-registrations?
If Afilias is not willing to spell
out solution at this point of time, clarifying some of the issues would be helpful
and allow for level playing field. Otherwise, just imagin some registrars submitting
purged lists and others submitting vast database of pre-registrations majority of
which are for non-existent names. In the round-robin, customers of later registrars
will have their chances vastly reduced.
