    Afilias should lose .info
    by watchdog on Saturday January 15 2005, @08:27PM (#14616)
    User #4058 Info
    Forget about evening considering Afilias for .net! When the Afilias registry contract for .info expires next year, .info should be giving to another company. Afilias made a mess out .info and still hasn't done anything with the fake sunrise names and they have taken out of circulation many oher trademarked domains which may be legitimate by leaving them locked (suprised the owners haven't got together and started a class action lawsuit against Afilias yet).

    See my Afilias parody site [haters.info] from 2001... still funny after all these years.

    Information is wrong
    by jenthro on Sunday January 23 2005, @10:17AM (#14634)
    User #4062 Info
    I work for a registrar that registers .info. We also collect our own statistics about registry uptime. .info did not have an outage in September based on our records. The registry never went down as the article claims. The email that was sent to us was in regards to DNS updates which we did notice were slower then normal. Atleast in this case Afilias was responsible enough to let its customer know why there was a delay in the updates, unlike some other companies that we deal with.

    It really irks me to be reading blatant lies. Makes me wonder if Mr. Steven Forrest is on "someones" payroll?

    I would also urge the editors of Icannwatch to actually provide fair coverage, as opposed to spewing propaganda all the time. You risk becoming truly irrelevant. The number of comments speak volumes.
