    Canada Rolls Out .XXX While ICANN is Distracted DU

    Canada Rolls Out .XXX While ICANN is Distracted DU

    .DU - Down Under

    Key insiders are meeting in Toronto while ICANN is distracted in New Zealand (and Australia).

    The new DNS is NOT being disclosed in Wellington.
    ICANN took the bait and now get to talk to their Verisign-provided sock puppets at the face to
    face meetings in NZ. Face is a stretch when one
    of the parties is a magic marker painting of
    eyes and a mouth on a sock puppet.

    The I* Party is Over - IETF Does Not Know it Yet
    by Anonymous on Wednesday March 22 2006, @01:17PM (#16658)
    **Die-Hard Attendees >50 Meetings**

    This list is still growing. I did like the suggestion from Carsten Bormann who said: ?Actually, I'd propose an IETF pain index, which is: sum of squares of the number of time zones between place of work and place of IETF meetings attended.?

    Here?s the Die-Hards as of Tuesday night:
    ? Ole Jacobsen (58)
    ? Scott Brim (55)
    ? Ross Callan
    ? Vince Fuller
    ? Tony Hain (51)
    ? Bob Hinden
    ? Allison Mankin
    ? Matt Mathis
    ? Keith McCloghrie
    ? Yakov Rekhter
    ? Mike St. Johns (60+)
    ? Jeff Schiller

    ICANN's New Problem - Registrar Collusion / Theft
    by Anonymous on Wednesday March 22 2006, @01:39PM (#16660)
    ICANN's New Problem - Registrar Collusion / Theft

    ICANN Registrars are now **using** ICANN policies
    and the lack of competition in TLDs to take
    advantage of .COM and .NET users via domain name
    theft and extortion.

    Valuable .COM and .NET names are now tossed
    around between Registrars as previous owners
    are caught in the middle and forced to take
    expensive legal action, or watch their names
    become the "toys" of Registrars.

    Chris Ambler's ENOM is one of the main players
    in the extortion game. People should now see
    why it was a wise move not to allow Ambler to
    get close to running a TLD, such as .WEB.
    There is of course ZERO over-sight from ICANN
    on companies like ENOM. ENOM's re-sellers are
    also involved in the scam. ICANN does not care,
    they have their fee and free trips around the
    world. ICANN insiders do not depend on having
    their names properly managed. Have you ever seen
    any domain names owned by Cerf ?
