Subject: you are right - we have to help ourselves and each other -


as the principals of the authority entrusted to oversee the management of matters such as these seem to be too closely enmeshed in the business they are supposed to regulate.

ICANN's principals have been exposed by the events of the Afilias .info rollout as men and women undeserving of the public's continued trust.

Elvis has taken up my call for a record of the performances of the different registrars through this sorry affair.

As Domebase has said on several occassions - we have been left to swing in the breeze - so let's maintain our rage and continue to compile evidence of the malpractice we have encountered and hope that someone like Richy or Robert will find space on their sites for a consumer advisory or warning about those registrars whose behaviour during the Afilias .info rollout indicates they chose short sighted self interest over best business practice - customer interest.

I keep saying it and won't stop - the registrars need more regulation - and that won't occur until their buddies in ICANN go back to their car lots are are not permitted to influence the policy and practices of the authority with responsibility for the management of the Internet for the public good.
