Subject: Who protects the consumer? - Well, from ICANN's performance


in the selection of Afilias Ltd. as the .info registry; ICANN's approval of the .info Sunrise IP protection/anti-cybersquatting clauses; ICANN's silence on Afilias and its registrar's instances of TM fraud and cybersquatting; ICANN's silence over the Landrusher's loss of what, USD$3,000,000 in preregistrations due to the ineptitude of the Afilias Sunrise administration; ICANN's silence over Afilias's inadequate communication with its customers and its lies by omission; ICANN's silence over the fact that five months after the .info Sunrise, Landrushers have yet to be advised as to where their money went and whether they will have standing in Landrush 2, just for starters......

I would guess that protecting the consumer is down to the likes of you and Garry Anderson who maintain "consumer advisory" web sites.  Did you guys ever apply for the job?

Seems to me that there has never been a better time for a shake up and shake out at ICANN.  It's time to get rid of those individuals at ICANN who have responsibility for the abomination of the Afilias .info launch.
