    Dictators surround themselves with yes men.

    There are still a lot of yes men around to see.

    Actually, the sponsoring organization for .CX, planet three ltd, has gone out of business, and their servers are to be shut down, which does impact the stability of the .CX zone.

    The christmas island folk are ready to run the show, but they need the roots updated to point at their new name servers. I believe they have actually been doing things independently from planet-three for some time now, however because IANA hasn't updated the roots, they were relying on some forwarding from p3 to make things work, and that mechanism is what will no longer work.

      Clearly a law experts way of handling things, not quite the behaviour of a technician or a business oriented person.
      It smells just like how governments handle these things. Avoid a breakdown (which may bring you into legal problems) but maintain your formal position.

      I just make the above remark about governments, to make clear that any legal or political intervention would not solve this type of procedural behaviour. Civil servants operate in the same way. Maybe Micheal is able to shed some more light on how to avoid this "legal precaution" that slows decision making down tremenduously.
