Subject: Self-interests? Of course!


It's kind of ironic that these IODesign supporters throw around terms like "anti-competitive", "conspiracy", "conflict of interest", etc. when they themselves are guilty of the same. I pay close attention to quite a few forums that discuss domain name issues, and I recognize several of these names and usernames from these boards.

The people I recognize all hold pre-registrations with IODesign and thus have their own conflicts of interest (some are even domain name speculators/cybersquatters). And why do they wish ICANN to recognize pre-registrations? Obviously so that they don't have to face competition from other people wishing to register "prime" domains. The point? Conflicts of interest and anti-competitive behavior work both ways.
