    ICM may have been hoping to run a new .XXX
    by Anonymous on Saturday June 04 2005, @04:47AM (#15444)
    If Registrar R217 (who submitted the second shortest list in the .biz2B and got 6 registrations) is ATech / A Technology Company, Inc...

    then there is a strong link with Michael Palage of Afilias, and I suspect that this list was closed to the public so that its own owners could benefit...

    The practice of some registrars in submitting deliberately short lists to "queue-jump" in Landrush situations was demonstrated very clearly in .biz2B and .info LR2. The shorter your list, the sooner your name came up in the round-robin process. Some registrars like Signature Domains appear to have applied for a tiny number of domains just for themselves, to play the system. I believe Jason Hendeles was involved in the same thing.

    Jason Hendeles is Founder/CEO of ATech Registrars
    Jason Hendeles is Founder/CEO of ICM Registry Inc

    Michael Palage of Afilias is/was linked to ICM as their Chief Policy Officer. He has confirmed this in his "Disclosure" in the Registrars Mailing List in December 2001.

    ICM may have been hoping to run a new .XXX registry and gained adult.info in LR2, using their co-company ATech Registrars

    This means that ATech submitted a tiny list (to gain advantage) and submitted this application for its own co-company and co-owner
