From the Afilias website:
"Afilias' mission is to make .INFO a resource that fosters
communication, commerce, and community for the people of the world."
COMMUNICATION: refusal to answer reasonable complaints and proposals;
refusal to communicate to registrars the status of Landrush pre-registrations that
have been invalidated by fraud; refusal to engage with the internet community over
deletions, cases of alleged fraud in their own company; refusal to participate in
this forum; refusal to engage in the worries and concerns of customers who have been
COMMERCE: taking money for explicitly fraudulent applications; accrediting
registrars and allowing them to charge money for products that did not exist; presiding
over a system that defrauded people; stealing domains that their own customers had
paid money for in advance (eg hawaii.info and maui.info)
COMMUNITY: in this world
there are destroyers and there are builders; building true community is about decency
and honesty and standing up for what is right; Afilias have, in my opinion, shown
NO decency or respect for members of the internet community; in my opinion, they
have treated their defrauded customers with contempt; they seem to me to have pursued
self-interest and profit, and the idea of "community" seems to me to be used as nothing
but spin and slogan.
But rest assured: we will hunt you down.
Your actions will
haunt you; they will be published; you will, if appropriate, be individually vilified;
and it's not going to stop; every step of this shambles is being detailed and prepared
for public derision.
It will not just blow over.
Accountability is only just
