Subject: I reckon Speednames are on the fiddle


      I know I'm jumping to conclusions here, but when I try to visualise a person, Plankenstein phoning up a registrar and cutting a deal for $500,000, I see him asking for some assurance that the names

1. will get submitted without appropriate validation
2. will not be revoked later

He would have spoke to the most senior person at Speednames for this magnitude of deal. That person I am convinced would have been very assuring- people always are when someone's waving $500K in front of them.

What I'm saying, is basically that I think the management of Speednames (as a board member of Afilias) would have categorically assured Plankenstein that his investment will pay off very well, although some token names (a few small Austrian villages) may be revoked just to keep spectators happy.
