I have the site backed up and safe but I have been obliged to take it
down for the time being because of a couple of legal threats, which I am taking advice
on. I hope to have it back up once I have assurance that my own legal position is
I've had numerous threats over the past 3 months but these two needed a little
closer attention. I am not an "industry insider" and I have a family and three small
kids to bring up, so it got to the point where I needed to stop and take measures
to protect myself.
I am still recording every step of the way for any future legal
action against ICANN or Afilias, and I have one other initiative which I am developing
involving certain American politicians. If I can be of any assistance to regular
correspondents who have established their credentials on this forum or in other ways
with me, then don't hesitate to get in touch and I hope I can help you.
have the original database of the 50000+ Sunrise frauds, courtesy of an insider,
and obviously I shall continue to monitor the actions of Afilias in the lead up to
their THIRD sale of these same domain names. I am also very interested in the stories,
accounts, data, e-mails etc of everyone who has had an involvement in what Afilias's
own Director, Robert Connelly, called the "abomination" of this Sunrise fraud.
I am posting, I may as well repeat my question (which I have repeatedly asked Vint
Cerf, Hal Lubsen, the ICANN team, the Afilias executive - with absolutely NO answer
and the deafening silence of the indicted):
What right has Afilias Board member
Govinda Leopold got to hold onto HAWAII.info, which she obtained through false Trademark
details, and to deprive the rest of the Internet community of this name?
it is falsely registered. She knows she has no right to it. She knows Afilias has
a contractual obligation to make the names it administers "available" to the worldwide
public... and she is STILL sitting on it. (And on Maui.info and Govinda.info)
why has Vint Cerf failed to answer this enquiry?
Why has Govinda Leopold and her
company 1stDomainNet not released the fake name?
Why has Afilias done nothing?
is the name being cybersquatted by one of Afilias's own Directors when the rest of
the world should have the right to it?
It's now public and open and laughable!
now months and months and she has not had the name deleted and released.
staggering is the failure of ICANN to even monitor, police and respond in this case.
Never mind enforce! They don't even bother to respond! Why???
And what about the
5000+ names which Speednames and DomainBank applied for, to the profitable tune of
$500,000? All of which are fake. Including dates of 1899 or "NONE" data in all fields?
And all of which the original applicants have admitted are false or even requested
The only people stopping the release of these names to the public
are the Afilias executive and Board member who run those two registrar companies.
Between Speednames and Hal Lubsen's DomainBank, their applications accounted for
over half the total reported fake names at Sunrise.
And yet they took all that
money and abused (and continue to abuse) their own Afilias system.
Well all this
is history, as they say, but I would say that by the time these facts and many others
are fully publicised (because these facts are not going away) the status and role
of some of those named here will be irreparably damaged.
Because their inaction
or complicity in fraud is indefensible.
Vint Cerf has hidden away from this, his
own organisation's forum, for months on end. He doesn't dare enter into dialogue.
He hides behind cryptic generalised statements in obscure occasional e-mails. But
he never has had the courage or honesty to respond in detail to any of the fair,
thoughtful, and reasonable concerns expressed month after month here... even when
Vint - OF COURSE this message will be read by you or brought to your attention.
Besides, I have wriiten long and detailed e-mails to you explaining the reasonable
concerns and allegations of ordinary internet users.
But you won't reply will you?
"father of the internet" has run off and abandoned the internet family. Those who
depended and trusted in him are left undefended.
Unless you have the courtesy and
courage to come on this forum in person, and answer direct concerns in detail, then
I for one will conclude in my own opinion that ICANN is corrupt.
It will be an
entirely rational conclusion. And the facts when they are clearly set out will make
this as clear as day. In my opinion.
