    None of the approved registries are following the plan.

    ICANN, in allowing this, has proven that the selection process was anything but fair and objective.

    The turned-down registries should be seriously thinking about a class action suit against ICANN for fraud.

    I'd rather wait 2 weeks....

    ...than experience the .info nightmare again! Right now, the only one who doesn't respond to e-mails inquiring about refunds for non-registrations is DomainDirect, Inc. (Tucows). I have registered the same domain names with them up to 3 times, each time being charged $69.98 , each time received confirmation e-mails, and each time nothing showed up in Afilias' WHOIS, and each time they showed the domain as being available! within minutes. Of course, they haven't heard the last about this. And of course, they have lost my business.

    But still it's a hassle, so I really prefer a 2-week wait.

    I seriously doubt testing has anything to do with the delay...it's more likely a response to the current court injunction against the .BIZ "lottery". Until NeuLevel figures out how to fully deal with their legal problems, .BIZ isn't going anywhere fast.

    Or, perhaps the $3 million bond they have to post has made their funding for their buildout just a little less easy to spend.

    What do funding boards usually say when a spinoff's first move is to get itself sued and forced to put up $3 million after losing an injunction round?

    I don't see my name in whois yet
    by Anonymous on Saturday October 20 2001, @02:54AM (#3031)

    From www.WHOIS.biz

    I don't see my name in whois yet

    Currently, the .biz Whois database contains only those .biz domain names for which there was one application received by the Registry and which do not match filed Intellectual Property Claims.

    The .biz registry will not complete loading of all of the other selected .biz domain names received during the .biz domain name application process until its go-live launch at 00:01 EDT on 23 October 2001.

    Applicants who have submitted an application for a .biz domain name will notified by their registrar or reseller once the applied .biz domain name has been selected and loaded into the database.

    ICANN Won't Choose Risky Domains - Dyson

    By David McGuire, Newsbytes
    16 Nov 2000, 12:41 AM CST

    When the powerful Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approves the next generation of Internet "neighborhoods" at its Friday board meeting, board members will avoid making risky choices, Board Chairwoman Esther Dyson predicted Thursday.

    "We are in risk reduction mode," Dyson said during a break in today's proceedings. "We are not trying to be courageous and find (Internet domains) that might work. We are trying to find names that will work."
