Subject: ICANN is biased to the registrars on .biz lottery...Why?

Message:
 

 
       
      From article, on the .biz lottery;

           -----A spokesperson for ICANN, Mary Hewitt, agreed that registrar confusion might be to blame. “The registrars ... could be doing it (still charging for names unobtainable) due to a lack of
knowledge,” she said. “They shouldn’t be doing it, but there
could be a myriad of reasons why.”
                   
Now ICANN is making excuses for registrars. May I be so bold
as to add that these registrars knew DAMN WELL the names
were unavailable. I guess Network Solutions and Register.com
which has taken corrective action) will be scurrying to destroy
any evidence showing they DID IN FACT KNOW what names
were reserved by NeuLevel...

             Its important we know where we stand with ICANN on this
             issue. I would assume there will be no investigation.

             ICANN should concern themselves with small businesses and
             consumers, not lobbying with big-money registrars...
