Subject: glad you shared your experience John - although I am sorry

that you too have paid dearly for your experience with the Afilias .info rollout.

I think that it is important that a "newcomer" has entered the Afilias .info rollout and immediately known that the process being overseen by Afilias and ICANN is very wrong and could have been fixed.

The Afilias spider web is still claiming victims.

Instead of creating a customer friendly environment, one engendering accountability and responsibility and trust, the culture that has apparently permeated ICANN, Afilias and a great many registrars is hostile to customers, the Internet community, and not one one would have hoped would characterise a stable and sustainable Internet.

All credit to you John for immediately taking up the keyboard and registering your disapproval and posing questions to those whose responsibility it should have been to ensure that the abomination of the Afilias .info rollout never happened, and to fix problems when they occurred.

You may wish to hang around the forum and join the voices of those posters who never gave their consent to Afilias and ICANN and some of the registrars to rip them off, and who are not prepared to say and do nothing, effectively telling the rip-off merchants that it's OK to scam the Internet community.
