Subject: Neustar/Melbourne IT/Afilias ... Larry, Moe, & Curly

Message:
 

 
                        1.  JVTeam put together the .WEB application.

2.  Melbourne IT did not know Afilias would select .WEB.

3.  Neustar's answer to ICANN:  "During the proposal development process Melbourne IT was associated with another applicant which has submitted an alternate bid. Given this association, Melbourne IT elected not to jointly submit the .web proposal."  This means (in my opinion) that Melboune IT divorced itself from the application, yet the application still lists JVTeam as the operator, with all of the JVTeam information (almost word-for-word the same as the .BIZ and .PER applications)!  OOPS!

4.  So even though the application is completely JVTeam, Neustar now tries to convince ICANN that Neustar can take the JVTeam application and run with it on their own.  Neustar states: "Neustar is fully capable and unconstrained from operating the registry and delivering all that is included in the .WEB proposal." 

But it's too late.  It's after the fact.  Additionally, Neustar has not provided any documentation to substantiate that claim.  They are asking ICANN to believe, without any supporting documentation, that even though Melbourne IT pulled out, Neustar can do the exact same job, alone. 

If these types of shenanigans don't DISQUALIFY an application, what would?
