From article: Dot-Info Claims Get New Scrutiny

Such domain names will be made available again early next year and will be distributed through a "random, round-robin" process that is fair to all applicants, according to LaPlante.

"The folks who were mad should be satisfied that they have an equal chance," he said. "It should all come out as a wash."

IMO Afilias spokesperson Roland LaPlante is talking from the orifice abutted by large flabby cheeks either side (not his gob).

The fairest way to give out landrush 2 would be that, only people who applied for the domain name in Landrush 1 should draw for it - free gratis. They already paid once - it would be unfair to make them pay again. After all, it was Afilias fault for not even checking domain matched trademark etc. etc etc.

I cannot see them agree to that - because they will not be able to screw more money from you.

Whatever happens, all entries for each name should be put its own individual draw. I am (very) suspicious of the way they did it last time.
