    Re: arbitration decisions & what not

    Not at all.

    We WILL win.

    Justice WILL be done.

    AOL, the Panelists and the NAF will be exposed for the corporate bunging and trademark boot-licking they are doing every day of every week of every month for years...

    It is stop someone had the courage to put a STOP to it.

    I am that man.

    AOL is Goliath; I am David.

    They are all going to lose, despite being bigger than me!

    GNR's Comment

    Just today, GNR did send me a comment, responding to portions of my reporting & specific suggestions with comments that seemed to me, as a threshold matter, quite thoughtful. I promptly sent a reply asking if they planned to post this and expressing my desire to link to it (both from my report and from here, perhaps among other places). I haven't heard back from them yet, but I hope and expect that they'll post this in the near future.

    Dear Anon., You said, "...If you had put forth some reasoned arguments at the beginning, people might have listened to you more." Well, I would have looked a bit stupid posting on a site I didn't know existed at the time about something that hadn't even been confirmed as registered and operational, wouldn't I now? For your information, and others, I spent quite a few hours going over the whys and wherefores myself about .NAME eligibility and allowed words and names. GNR's website did, and still does, make it quite clear that other combinations and words are allowable even though they do not fit to the early, but over-limiting, 'classic' firstname.lastname.NAME Rule.

    Re: All about Adrian?

    "...This post was about Edelman's great .name research, now it's all Adrian, all the time. Anyone care to comment more on the .name situation? Are the .names that were listed in Ben's report going to be deleted? Does GNR have any comment on the report?..."

    OK> Point taken. Over to you Ben.

    (What did GNR have to say and will they stand by it? Are you and they going to respond to my fuller comments and questions at http://WWW.AD2000D.COM/.NAME/ ?)
