the corrupt culture of Afilias Ltd. and apparently most of its approved (and pending) registrars.

We were lied to and scammed, for which the principals of the fraud should serve jail terms.

Govinda Leopold, Afilias BoD member caught cybersquatting; Afilias approved registrars caught cybersquatting; Afilias BoD registrar members pocketing the fees for half the 10,000 fraudulently registered Sunrise names; Afilias pocketing 5 year registrations for 10,000 fraudulently registered names; Afilias forgets the word "Landrush" and its registrars pocket the preregistration fees from how many thousand Landrush applicants who sought the names Afilias registered to the Sunrise cheats; Afilias will preside over an equitable return of the challenged names to the public, who will pay for the third time for a chance to win the 10,000 names which have proved such a wonderful bonus to the shameful registry and those registrars involved in its corrupt culture.

Thanks for the tip on ActiveISP which sounds like a number of "registrars" I came across who appeared to have sprung up for the sole purpose of fleecing as much money from would be .info registrants in the leadup to the .info launch, and nothing else.
