Instead of compiling their list over the past 3 months,
they asked some poor shlob to look into it on the 26th. "Ooops, it's tens of thousands
of names, we haven't had time to look into this with WIPO and all (those couple of

number crunching super computer to compile tha "LIST".
Meanwhile .INFO is stuck
in never never land, no one will market, no one will develop and time stands still.

with a rosy prediction that the economy will turn around in the second half of 2002
and figured that's a nice round date for Landrush-2, folks let's take our time.
