||The honor of gas station owners
Afilias created that whole environment of uncertainty
and vagueness. Instead of a deadline they came up with a "date-range". They hide
behind the labels of "experimental", "unexpected" and " technical glitch"|
gave everyone an opportunity and excuse to abuse, cheat and manipulate this farce
of a process.
It was quite obvious that the attraction of stooping low to squeeze
some more bucks was too hard to ignore but telling people they were doing it out
of "fairness" is a little over the top.
The fact that they were also increasing
the bidding increments to $10 must be attributed to their sense of duty towards their
loyal customers. They must have thought of this one as a tribute to NY gas station
owners who were charging $5 a gallon in the wake of Tuesday's sad tragedies.
