If you visit the ICANN DNSO forum, it's like a registrars club - all the old names
are there and actively contributing... Siegfried Langenbach of Joker, Michael Palage
of Afilias etc etc
Until the regulatory body ICANN is disassociated from the people
its supposed to be regulating, what protection is there for ordinary customers?
is typical that while these people are active and happy to participate on their own
internal forum (which blocks out contributions from ordinary customers) they NEVER
respond to fair, reasoned and important questions on this public forum (which exists
to promote "transparency" and give the internet public a chance to have dialogue
with the regulatory body).
Ordinary honest mostly small-time people have been BADLY
hurt by the abuses of the .info roll-out, created by ICANN and Afilias, supervised
by ICANN and Afilias, and then abused by Afilias executives and Board members (and
by corrupt registrars).
It is not good enough for Afilias to claim "vindication"
by challenging some of the fake names, when principal players at Afilias have submitted
most of the fake data and abused the very system they set up (as Richy has shown
with the William Lorenz/Lubsen issue). It is not good enough, because honest people
have been defrauded.
Action taken to impose a Domebase solution and avoid the fraud:
Action taken to delete fake names before Landrush (when requested even by the
people who submitted them): NIL
Action against fraudulent registrars:
Action against fraudulent Board members: NIL
Action by ICANN: NIL
to complaints on this forum: NIL
Dialogue with the public: NIL
Openness and transparency:
Protection of the consumer: NIL
Sanctions against Spy Productions, Yesnic,
Joker, Speednames, DomainBank : NIL
Board Members still holding fake names fraudulently
obtained : YES
Afilias CEO's company received $15000 to support zero-data fake
claims : YES
Speednames (represented on Afilias Board) receipt of $500000 for submitting
Plankenstein's 4981 fakes: YES
Profit for abuse of the system and breach of contract
So Afilias executives and Board members submitted over 5000 fake names. Then
they say they'll challenge their own wholly fake submissions.
don't respond because they daren't.
