Govinda Leopold has explained on an ICANN message board that Hawaii.info and Maui.info
were actually submitted in error back in July when 1stDomainNet were running a test.
then took steps to "undo" what had happened, but was told that it couldn't be undone.
I find inexplicable (if you accept as plausible that someone filled in the fake numbers
and sent it off as a Sunrise application by mistake) is that Afilias have failed
to delete these names, when they KNOW it's their own Board Member involved, and when
they know this is depriving honest people from having the domain, and... most significantly...
when they have the contractual right to delete any name, especially where the details
If Govinda Leopold is as innocent as she claims, shouldn't she at least
insist that these names are deleted right away, so somebody honest can register them
I just don't understand what Afilias are playing at. The same applies
to Lorenz and Plankenstein, who have admitted all their 5000+ registrations are without
Trademarks. Lorenz even BEGS Afilias and DomainBank 18 times to delete the names.
to delete these names right away is disgraceful.
NOT to have deleted them BEFORE
Landrush (so honest pre-registrants could have them) is outrageous.
in advance that Govinda Leopold's name applications were false, but they wouldn't
release the names for the honest people.
I'd ask Afilias to respond to these honest
fair comments - but they never do. They just stay silent. I'm sorry. I just don't
understand these people. I teach my kids to own up and say sorry when they do something
unfair. It's like these people don't inhabit the same planet. It's sick.
