Yes you took a risk. However the thing I notice in these forums is that the people who support pre-registrations believe that just because they took a risk, they should be rewarded for that risk. That's not the way it works. Just because you took a risk does not mean that you are entitled to be rewarded for that risk.

I am confident that ICANN will handle the addition of new TLDs fairly. The DNSO statement that "the registration of names in new TLDs will be done on a fair basis, and the practice of pre-registration should not be encouraged" indicates that ICANN knows what's fair and that they will handle the issue of pre-registrations in a fair manner.
