    ICANN is devil, and you are ICANN's assistant and accomplice in this .ORGasm process.


    What a shame!

    The fewer the number of members the easier a cartel is to keep on track.

    Why the change?

    User #3515 Info | http://www.jan.schmidt.net/
    Hi,

    I've only recently started to get into the details of all the ICANN-processes and stuff, so this might be a stupid question.. but why did the .org - Registrar change? I only read something about VeriSign, ICANN and the DoC siginng an agreement to transfer the responsibility by dec. 31, and Versign promising some funds for the new registrar if it was a NPO. But what are the reasons for this, can someone please fill me in on the background?
    Thanks! :-)

      Joe Sims made a private deal with Verisign to give it .com forever. In return Verisign had to give up .org and endow $5,000,000 on the new owner of .org if that owner is a non-profit. The ICANN board rubber-stamped this privately made deal.

    Unity gets top marks or near top marks in practically every area, and yet fails to get the contract.

    Well, here's one ex-employee of Poptel (one of the UnityRegistry partners) who is well hacked off...( For the sake of completeness I should note that I had only peripheral contact with the .ORG bid and my decision to move on was not connected directly with the .ORG outcome.)

    It apears that ISOC can't even set up its own domain, isoc.org, correctly.
    See http://www.paf.se/domain/domaincheck.sh?domain=isoc.org

    Well, ISOC's partner, Afilias, has its own problem with its own domain:
    >Result of check of domain afilias.info

    1 error(s) found:
    ZONEBUG:5:afilias.info.:Email address ns02.afilias.info is not ok

      Hmm... looks like Icannwatch can't even setup its site.

      2 error(s) found:

      ZONEBUG:11:icannwatch.org.:Empty envelope from address not accepted
      ZONEBUG:11:icannwatch.org.:Empty envelope from address not accepted

      Your arguments are stupid.

      Guess you also better let google know their site is broken too!

      1 error(s) found:

      ZONEBUG:5:google.com.:Email address NS3.google.com is not ok

      In the great mandella of life, a bad e-mail address in an SOA record is a mild error. The lame delegations made in isog.org are errors that go much deeper and threaten the roots of isoc.org's stability.

        I tried it against my own domain which I know is okay. The email check on that script is flawed. It fails to use a proper from address ("MAIL FROM: "), which most people block for spam reasons.

        Yes it's against the RFCs, but it saves so much time and there's no real reason these days to have a null return address.

    Re: Directors Preparing For LAI (Life After ICANN)

    In my opinion, ICANN Directors are busy feathering the various nests they will eventually inhabit after they're thrown out of ICANN ... building their own versions of golden parachutes.

    Congratulations to the ISOC and Afilias. Let's wish them both well.
