    THROWING DOWN THE GAUNTLET ON THE .NAME ISSUE!

    In the interests of future Internet usage, if ICANN and/or GNR insist that .NAME is only meant for firstname.lastname.NAME or lastname.firstname.NAME, then I will do the following:

      (i) Insist that both ICANN and GNR clarify their position publicly

    (ii) Depending upon their response, I will ask my Registrar to cancel any non-personal .NAMEs (with the exception of those .NAMEs beginning with official titles, such as "Sir", or "Prince", and also those .NAMEs with a genuinely useful and laudable charitable use)

    (iii) I will naturally expect my Registrar to refund me my BulkRegister .NAME Registration Charges, as well as all of my associated Application Fees for any non-conforming .NAMEs I was led to believe were allowable by GNR's website (including those I had to pay even where my .NAME Applications were unsuccessful)

    (iv) I would insist GNR provided some form of compensation for clearly misleading visitors to their site on .NAME eligibility and allowable .NAME domains (by the way, I have kept all evidence of this, in case they suddenly remove those comments)

    (v) I hope this would pave the way for other Registrars and non-conforming .NAME holders to follow suit and restore some credibility to the .NAME platform (assuming both ICANN and GNR insist upon a stricter interpretation of the .NAME concept)


    Yours,

    Shortly AFTER I posted my suggestions, GNR did in fact post their Official Policy and Opinion on such matters; quite clearly, they have put me in the clear with nearly all of my registrations and are not going to challenge any of them in the spirit of the purpose of the .NAME domain.

    Three cheers for GNR!
