    time running out on unrestricted WHOIS?

    Milton, I'm surprised to see you write:

    ...time is running out on unrestricted access to Whois data...

    This is news to me. I thought those wanting a less public WHOIS were in the (presumably losing) minority insofar as ICANN is concerned. -g

    What happens if someone ignores it?

    There is nothing currently preventing anyone with a domain from giving out subdomains with any policy they chose.
    Granted yourdomain.2d4.com isn't as nice as yourdomain.com, but it could (theoretically) be yours without the need for any whois entry.

    What happens when someone starts doing this, do they pull the plug on the SLD?

    Being in Canada I have seen no evidence of this search blanket's existence. I haven't looked into whether it exists at all but if it does it can't be very successful.

    Most affiliate programs pay at most five cents (and often much less), not 10 cents.

    There is no evidence that such individuals are controlling the CIRA board. And while such a mythical registrant could register ten thousand names they would need to appear to be ten thousand different registrants to vote more than once, this would include using different addresses, email addresses, and credit card numbers. Hardly seems worth the bother. -g
