Subject: inundated with info from the .info registry

Other than homepage notices that the registry isn't working,  the Afilias registry - "where the world once went for information" - is seemingly hunkered/bunkered down and producing a deafing silence, broken only by occassional media releases, never dealing with matters of importance to its customers, but filled with marketing hype for those who don't yet know the truth about the Afilias/ICANN .info fiasco.

Some of us are now getting refunds from some registrars who took down- payments on Landrush names.

In the light of this fact, I am seeking opinions from the technically expert amongst forum posters regarding the ease/difficulty of maintenance/retention of Landrush preregistration data for the Landrush names which the registry saw fit to register in Sunrise, despite the fact that some  Sunrise applicants indicated their applications were not eligible as they provided none of the required TM data, or indicated that their applications were ineligible as their TM data was obviously false.

Are refunds the end of our hopes for a Landrush II and the hope that our preregistration fees may earn us a chance to win valuable generics, or will our Landrush preregistration fees simply becomming an Afilias bonus for their registrars?

The Landrushers deserve better!!!!
