You came to the forum Lars a fews days ago with your rationale for your/SpyProductions'conduct
in the lead up to the Afilias fiasco of the .info launch.
You stirred up the forum
and I responded with a Landrusher's point of view on what your/SpyProductions'action
had had on Landrushers and their credit cards.
I concluded my post with some questions
for you. You have yet to respond so I have repeated my post. I continue
to look forward to your return to the forum with your answers.
Message: you've got balls Lars - I will
give you that - and you may
have been an honest man and even a hero to the little guy, but you apparently found
yourself involved in the corrupt culture presided over by Lynn and Cerf which permits
registrars to do pretty much what they like without fear of censure or penalty.
Very few registrars it appears conducted their business during the .info launch in
a way which would be considered by the general public to be ethical and moral.
bottom line of the Afilias .info launch is that the Landrush applicants paid money
for nothing. The registrars and the registry benefited from processing 10,000
ineligible Sunrise applications as ICANN had approved an "after the event" IP protection
ICANN's and Afilias's supposed awareness of the strong likelihood
that the launch of the new TLD would produce instances of cybersquatting.
reason that I and others at this forum have been kicking SpyProductions is that you
came out and recommended that as the .info launch process was badly flawed, in order
to get good names, we should fake TM data and attempt to cybersquat. You told us
that the ICANN and Afilias system made cybersquatting easy.
that was facilitated by the "after the event" IP protection policy in place - how
lame - for which Lynn and Cerf must bear responsibility - cost the Landrushers millions.
And the cartel of registrars which make up Afilias says they won't get involved in
between applicants and the relevant registrars.
You can't have been reading this
forum for long Lars, as I and many others have been proposing "solutions" for six
months - but no one who could have made a difference appears to be listening - giving
weight to the notion that the Afilias cartel and any other damn registrar can do
whatever they like to their customers and their customers' credit
been proposing that the conduct of registries and registrars will only change once
those currently responsible for the apparently corrupt culture of the DNS administration
are removed. I don't see how the little guys stand a chance while the big guys
control the system in the manner they do at the moment.
And what of the millions
paid by the Landrushers?
Six months after the event, what do the Landrushers have
to show for their hope that the .info launch was going to be a straight game?
have got credit card debt - that's what.
Come back Lars and tell the forum about
our refunds for the Landrush names for which we paid our preregistration.
back to the forum Lars and tell us about the standing that the Landrushers will have
when the challenged names are made available to the public in an "equitable" manner.
back to the forum Lars and tell us how you are going to work from within the currently
corrupt DNS administration and retailer system to make it a safe place for the little
guy. Tell us what you are going to do to bring some credibility to ICANN and
establish the Internet community's trust in registrars.
Looking forward to your
