You say:

> Why did ICANN and Afilias construct such a 'soft' and flimsy procedure, when they could perfectly well have been rigid on the applicants responsibility to provide eligible data? Especially when you consider that even I - a complete outsider and newbie - had identified this as a problem?

> Were they THAT incompetent or were they simply corrupt?

'Soft' and flimsy procedure? - barely covers the matter, does it?

Given that they KNEW about the deliberate so-called 'FLAW' and they were even told by "a complete outsider and newbie" (and still did nothing);

Which is the most likely answer, on the balance of probability - incompetence OR corruption?

Bare in mind they are not complete outsiders or newbies - these are very expert people - including people in the business and lawyers.

If I was on the jury - it is certain, they are guilty of corruption.
