You ask:

>So which is it Incompetence or Corruption?

You know what I believe - Corruption:

I think many of you are being too kind - letting them get away with just incompetence.

It was planned to make the most - maximum profit from selling lottery tickets for two lotteries, so no prize for these tickets in Landrush - trademark names going to Afilias and Registrars - etc.

Story for you:

"Considering how long these new TLDs have been in the making - not to mention claims of favouritism towards Afilias from the notoriously secretive ICANN Board - such a cock-up would cause many to ask who on earth we have left in charge of the Internet's infrastructure."
