    Should they let the false data stand then?
    by anotherblackhat on Thursday June 17 2004, @11:32AM (#13766)
    User #3427 Info
    ... such as the recommendation to punish domain name users when a domain name is cancelled or suspended for "false contact data," by canceling all other registrations with identical contact data.


    If you accept that it's ok to cancel or suspend one domain for having "false contact data",
    then you should also accept as ok cancelling or suspending all domains with the same "false contact data".

    The whole idea is ludicrous though - if they can't use "false" data, then they'll pick a domain they don't like, and use that data.

    Might I humbly suggest;

    You are precisely on target, and I thought this dumb idea was shot down a long time ago. The fact that this proposal would still be under consideration, given that the "offensive" use of false contact data provides the opportunity for some serious damage, is reflective of the positive stupidity of the people involved in this process.

    For anyone who doesn't "get it" from the comment above, what you do is:

    1. Register an offensive/infringing domain name sure to provoke someone's ire.

    2. Use someone else's contact data - i.e. ICANN, Microsoft, the RIAA, whatever.

    3. Sit back and watch your victim have all of their domain names deleted.

    Nitwits. Absolute nitwits.
