Subject: Excellent question from vera-city


And why did DomainBank (Afilias CEO Hal Lubsen) and Speednames (Afilias Board member Mickey Beyer) submit over 50% of all false names between them, and charge over $500,000 to abuse their own system?

And why don't they JUST DELETE THEM, then NO-ONE could buy them as Sunrise fakes. The 50% plus names referred to were applied for by Lorenz and Plankenstein, and both have openly admitted the details are ineligible. Afilias have even been asked: "Please delete".

Afilias executives take the money
Afilias executives screw up their own system
Afilias executives refuse to delete the names

Then they say "Please don't sell these names". Why did they supply them/register them in the first place? What a company!
