Subject: My read on this..


        Landrush is done, it is all ready, they are stalling for another reason altogether.

Think about it, for Afilias to make what amounts to their first published commitment (i.e. a definite ultimatum) I'm absolutely sure they have it in hand already.

Why they will release the information on Monday could be for any number of reasons:
1. Data massaging (profiling, retribution, demographics, registrar-pleasing etc. etc.).
2. Timing for marketing purposes (Mr. LaPlante has his release about the launch all polished and ready).
3. As "Antipodes" observently noticed, they are calling it "Start-up" and no more mentioning "Landrush" anywhere!! All the more reason to believe they want a single event mentioned in the media with all the positive spin it will entail..

Monday it is (notice though that true to form in absence of a set time, Monday spans from Sunday all the way to Tuesday morning, classic Afilias)
