    Again, more good work from Edleman. Any of the registrars or ICANN want to hire this guy?

    User #2967 Info | http://domains.dan.info/
    When .COM, .NET, and .ORG started, they could be described as "open and chartered"; while registrations were open to the public (not tightly controlled like .GOV and .MIL), there were intended purposes documented in RFC 1591 that the registry/registrar was expected to enforce -- in the early days, many attempted registrations got rejected due to their applicant not being the proper sort of entity (I can recall an attempt on my own part to register a .NET domain on the behalf of a client that was turned down because they weren't a network infrastructure provider). But then Network Solutions (the monopoly registrar and registry at the time) dropped the ball and stopped even trying to enforce these rules, and the free-for-all began.

    It's really a non-issue, especially for .name. I'm not a .biz owner, but buying something cheap and reselling it for profit sounds like Business 101 to me. It seems ridiculous to demand .biz be used for legit business, then preclude anyone from making a profit on the name ... after all, that's what business is.

    Here Ben, here's a cause REALLY worthy of your time and effort. Please explain how prime .info names are dropping right into the clutches of Moshe Fogel and pals.

    Domain ID: D2401948-LRMS
    Domain Name: LAPTOP.INFO
    Created On: 09-Sep-2002 20:05:29 UTC
    Last Updated On: 23-Sep-2002 11:16:46 UTC
    Expiration Date: 09-Sep-2004 20:05:29 UTC
    Sponsoring Registrar: Gal Communications Ltd. dba Communigal (R111-LRMS)
    Status: ACTIVE
    Status: OK
    Registrant ID: C2501233-LRMS
    Registrant Name: Onvolite Inc. a California Corporation
    Registrant Organization: Onvolite Inc. a California Corporation
    Registrant Street1: 12121 Wilshire Bouleward # 900
    Registrant City: Los Angeles Registrant State/Province: CA

    Onvolite is involved with "Domain Name Strategy Consulting". Note the reg date (Sept 9, 2002).This name was a sunrise-fraud name, not released in LR2. Why no LR3? Because Moshe Fogel waits (with open arms) to collect the names before they hit the market.

    Thanks ICANN, for giving .info to a company whose Directors are gaming the system.

    Ben, all I can say to you is: Go find a worthy cause, and quit worrying about a few legitimate registrants trying to sell their .biz names.
