because they certainly can't give straight answers.
Email from me to Afilias:
could you tell me what is going on. I have been expecting to be informed of the fate
of my landrush registrations for over 2 days now. My questions are as follows:
When (to the nearest couple of hours) can I expect to find out if my landrush registrations

2) Why have you not published a definite date for the results
of the landrush to be announced?
3) What are these latest delays due to?
address these three points in your reply."
The reply was as follows:
Please read the this attachment that is published on our website.
All other questions should be forwarded to the registrar or registrars that you submitted
your names with."

they don't have a clue what is going on either!
My message to TR:

Many thanks for your

Thank you for your message.
We are still awaiting notification from Afilias as to when they will be able to provide
the results to the landrush as they are continuing to process submissions.
We tentatively believe that the results will be supplied before 1st October when
the domain is scheduled to go live for registrations.
I hope this is of some
