    I know where you are coming from.

    I am more than happy to defend my position, and others, from any legalistic interpretation of the .NAME policy.

    Quite clearly and also evidently, the Global Name Registry has a different interpretation of what .NAME is for themselves, so they would look pretty stupid criticising me for having just a slightly different concept to them on this issue! (please see my fuller statements at http://www.ad2000d.com/.NAME/ for more information together with clear and logical arguments for my position.)

    Thanks for wishing to be a fly-on-the-wall - us CyberSwatters are good at squashing flies (*joke* smile ;?)

    I don't speak for Fnord or anybody else, but I myself don't demand an absolutely nitpickingly legalistic view of enforcement of every TLD's charter. I'd be happy if people at least stayed vaguely within the spirit, instead of just treating everything as a free-for-all. In the case of .name, the spirit is that the names be registered by individuals for their own personal use, and that they correspond either to the individuals' legal names or names they're commonly known as. Such things as smith.family.name or johnandmary.smith.name, while perhaps technically against the policy (since they refer to a group of people instead of one person) wouldn't really greatly bother me if they were in fact registered and used by people named Smith for their personal family site. And it wouldn't bother me if somebody with a title on their name, like Prince Charles, registered a name that included it, since that is indeed what they're commonly known as. However, none of this is particularly relevant to your own case, where you've registered all sorts of names that don't correspond to anything by which you, personally, are known, supposedly on the behalf of "clients" with whom you don't actually have any sort of relationship, apparently.
