Subject: Have no doubt that the exact sequence of Sunrise, pregreg and challenges was planned


I have no doubt that it was all planned long before the Sunrise period. Afilias' business stategy was designed off the record to encourage fraud and welcome it, have non-refundable prereg's and then to 'double cross' the fraudsters by having a final bulk challenge themselves.

They rip off the prereg's from honest people, the sunrise frauds from cybersquatters and then they put all the names back in the pool at the end of it (after helping themself to etc along the way).

They had no intention of following the domebase solution or any other solution. In their eyes there was no problems. Their plan to maximise sales had worked probably better than they expected.
