    Well, I actually took the time to read your statement. Do you agree that you registered the .name domain names listed by Ben? Seem so. Did you have any rights in those names (such as they were the same as your own name or were authorized, etc)? No. So basically, your registrations are in violation of the rules. Now that we've established that, what is it going to take for GNR to complete their duty as the registry operator and cancel these registrations that clearly and admitedly violate the rules? GNR should follow the model set by Afilias, self police their own zone file, and cancel obvious wrong registrations. Only this time, instead of having a LandRush 2, the names should only be made available unless the RIGHTFUL owner asks. In this case, it wouldn't be you Adrian.

    .name has a chance to be a viable TLD, but only if they do some work to police their TLD. If people see that anything goes and .name is just another open space like .com (well, then they're going against their proposal with ICANN anyway), then .name will cease to function as a viable TLD.

    As for the long list of registry reserve names, the registry can reserve what ever names it wants, but that does not give the ordinary registrant (that would be you) the right to also register names that normally wouldn't be allowed. That's why you're the registrant and they're the registry.

    Maybe if you're so upset about how the whole thing works, you should go start up your own second level domain within ad2000 or go join New.net (oh wait, they don't really exist anymore either) If you can't play by the rules, get out of the sandbox.
