This is what I think of them:
JDRP, have you the guts for public discussion - or
are you cowards?
My beliefs are based on reasoned logic - and have not been refuted.
findings are objective - and can be proven to be so.
Indeed, honest Lawyers have
verified the solution so that all trademarks may use their mark without 'consumer
confusion', 'trademark conflict' and 'passing off'.
Just like corruptness and conspiracies
