Subject: Richard - the YesNIC list of 261 TM frauds and .info Sunrise


registrations is awesome - it's a haul that only a registrar prepared and permitted to break all the rules could have won.

My guess is that the 007Names/MustardSeed haul in the .info Landrush is possibly much longer - a list that I suspect could only have been achieved when a registrar cueues their own and no one elses names and is permitted to do so.

I would like to be proven wrong, but I think that 007Names/MustardSeed pulled off one of the great scams of the .info launch.

My guess is that they will be back for more in the .info Landrush 2  and that it could be hard to find a shorter cueue than that which 007Names/MustardSeed will submit for themselves.

With the DNS governance being just a sham under the present ICANN - I don't think we should get our hopes up that ICANN and or Afilias will take a stick to YesNIC for its conduct in the .info Sunrise or investigate the actions of 007Names/MustardSeed in the .info Landrush.
