Subject: Lack of .info from Afilias.info

Message:
 

 
A few people on here have said that they have spoke to Afilias and that representatives have told them that there will be a second land rush for successfully challenged names. However at this point this is still just conjecture - there's zip .info from Afilias' press releases. This from a company that is trying to position itself as the place 'where the world turns for information'?!!!! Oh the irony ...

In Public Relations 101 we learned that often the worst thing a company can do is not communicate with its audience. As a publicly-sanctioned body (in principal, through ICANN), Afilias has a significant obligation to give the public timely and factual information. By drip-feeding us with self-aggrandizing marketing PR, they only alienate their end users: us.

Afilias should spent more time putting out relevant information, than making their website look pretty (actually I prefered the previous no-nonsense design, personally).

Cheers,
Dave
