Subject: ICANN SCAMMED OUT OF ( $950,000 ) BY AFILIAS CARTEL!

Message:
 

 
You add it up,

While other companies paid theit money for a single application under one entity, Afilias decided it would be better to form a cartel of what I like to call "freeloaders" and rip ICANN off. I believe this is a mockery of ICANN's application process and should not go rewarded.

I believe additional factors for selecting the appropriate entity for the new TLD's is basic honesty and integrity from the start.

What new tricks by this cartel are in store if Afilias is chosen?
