    Re: Top ten reasons why it is my business

    1. ICANN and the IP folks set up a regimen to protect intellectual property. That is a policy decision. I am interested in ICANN policy, and involved to what little extent is allowed.

    That is commendable. So do I.

    2. ICANN unveiled some few new TLDs. Their success or failure will help to determine whether, and what sort of, new TLDs we might see in future. I'm generally in favor of more new TLDs, ergo...

    So am I, but only with democratic consensus and also common-sense and clearer rules and trademark checks and balances at the time of registration. Do you agree?

    3. I think ICANN and its registries and registrars have done a generally miserable job with the new TLD rollouts. Your portfolio is a case in point, so I'll point it out.

    (i) I basically agree with you regarding ICANN's lack of oversight of the new roll-outs. Previous lessons have not be learnt and cybersquatting and fraudulent registrations abound yet again (I do not, however, include my own registrations in that statement!)

    (ii) That is entirely up to you, that is your choice

    4. It is bad actors like you that put the rest of us at risk to lose our names, eg: Peter Frampton.

    I totally disagree. Some doubtless has now registered your name, if you have not, due to you mentioning it. Thay is not my fault. You will need to challenge them through either the ERDRP or UDRP, if you can afford to... but that is one of my MAIN gripes the Arbitration routes - they are too expensive and prohibitive to the small businessman or less-wealthy or poor individual and therefore they have NO WAY of challenging false registrations without suing at Law, which is EVEN MORE expensive! This is not justice. It is unfair and prejudicial to democracy and fair Internet usage. Don't you agree?

    5. You're the one who chose to post here in a public place. If you don't like the outcome, crawl back under your bed.

    I am not too bothered by the discussion. I actually quite relish healthy and constructive debate and arguments, so long as there are no personal attacks, no defamation, no slander and no negative unconstructive destructive critisim just for the sake of it... Don't you agree?

    6. It's kinda fun (though not very sporting) to watch you flail about.

    Help!!! LOL I'm OK thanks. No probs that I can't deal with, other than ill health right now... How about you?

    7. I don't much care for cybersquatters.

    Neither do I. I am not one. Not by my definition of what one is, anyway. What is your definition please? Would you like to know mine as well?

    8. I don't care at all for liars.

    I am a Christian. I do not lie, unless I am protecting an innocent person or people from harm(see the Bible, Rahab and the spies story); I would be willing to lie about anything I knew if I was unfortunate enough to be captured by anti-Government forces such as Al Quaida, for example; or if someone with a loaded gun or other weapon asked me if people where inside a building... So I basically believe one should NOT lie, but that there are EXCEPTIONAL circumstance where LYING is aradoxically the RIGHT THING to do. As a practising Christian, my conscience is pretty clear on this subject, but I am far from perfect, like us all. What are you thoughts on this?

    9. I have too much time on my hands.

    So do I, but I am also very ill with CFS/ME and IBS which means mental and physical effort exhausts me and I am prone to getting moody and over-angry when I am confronted or challenged. I am working on this, with God's help. I just ask for other people's patience, as it is certainly not my strong point. Thanks.

    10. I'm just naturally nosy. -g

    I noticed!! LOL ;?)

    I don't have enough time on my hands right now to answer all your questions. But I have one of my own. What exceptional circumstances did you use to square your Christian conscience with registering bulk.register.name and lying about the data in the contact information (and thus the WHOIS)? -g
