    (ii) We are operate non-profit consumer sites

    Then .org would be the most sensible domain to use, wouldn't it, not .com or .name?

    (iii) As I am long-term sick on State Benefits, I do not have to pay Court Fees

    Any such rule probably is specific to U.K. courts, and wouldn't apply in the U.S., where you will have to pursue your case under the terms of the N.A.F. policy.

    (iv) I am defending myself

    ...meaning that you have a fool for a client, by the old adage. Lots of luck going against the large teams of attorneys your opponents are going to put forward.

    (v) Lawyers, Solicitors, Barristers and Academic are currently offering me their free advice

    Another old adage says that free advice is worth what you pay for it. Do any of them have any experience with U.S. law?

    (vi) I hope to shortly have the Pro Bono or 'no-win no-fee' advice and counsel of a top London Barrister within the next few weeks

    Which once again is pretty much irrelevant to the U.S. case you're about to get into. Plus, you'll have a lot of expenses in airfare and accommodations in order to represent yourself, since you'll have to appear in person in court.

    I live in the UK; and I am also on long-term sickness benefits. Travel to the USA is pretty much out of my control and is impossible for three reasons right now:

    (i) Ill-health

    (ii) Lack of funds; being made bankrupt by AOL over the last two cases (yes, okay, I was poor before they took litigation against me.)

    (iii) There is not enough time to get a passport

    (iv) There is not enough time allowed within UDRP Rules for a foreign person to practicably take out a court action in a different county

    I am the one making the Claim THIS TIME.

    Let them come here and fight it out. THEY WILL LOSE - BIG, BIG TIME.

    If they refuse to respond to my Claims, I will win be Default.
