Subject: the only data field integrity checks done in the Sunrise


        were credit card number and expiry date!

An integrity check of the .info registry would have resulted in may be 10,000 plus fraudulently registered names being returned to the Landrush lottery barrel.

Bob Connelly - PSI Japan - did an Afilias integrity check and then checked out of Afilias, describing its management of the .info rollout as an abomination.

Now it's time for all registrars who want return customers and some credibility in the future - to refund to Landrushers their preregistration fees for names fraudulently registered in Sunrise - remember that SpyProductions announced that cheats would be welcome and Afilias did nothing in response - other than take more than USD$2,500,000 in fees from those with rubbish in their TM data fields.

Afilias integrity checks - just wait for Roland LaPlante's spin on Landrush - sorry, forgot that Landrush is not a word used at Afilias since Afilias's decision to void all preregistrations for the names they registered for the Sunrise cheats - no doubt Afilias's system crashes will be due to the unprecedented popularity of .info and Roland's oh so clever marketing - ho hum - go take a realty check Roland - go take a realty check Afilias!!!
