    Why wouldn't ICANN be the focus of the RICO charges ?

    Neulevel just did what ICANN dictated it had to do with mountains of legal contracts.

    Why doesn't Neulevel dump ICANN and start turning
    up the .BIZ Registry and names ?

    The sooner Neulevel gets the .BIZ name space
    expanding and they start focusing on the business
    of being a Proof-of-Concept Registry (like ARNI),
    the sooner customers will be able to use .BIZ names.

    If Neulevel has no intention of making names work,
    they should start refunding all the money they
    have collected. They have to either go forward
    are backwards. Attempting to stand still does not
    work. Why are they holding back ? Surely, they
    can get names into a DNS server and resolving.
    They have had over a year. When they applied
    they claimed to have capabilities. How can these
    delays help them in the long run ? Why should
    ICANN and the .BIZ community continue to deal
    with them if they do not move forward ?

    What better defense than to walk into a court and
    say, "we refunded the money" ?

    How can ICANN and Neulevel get away with taking
    people's money and not performing the service promised ?

    Is this unexpected at all? No, it's not.

    The whole ICANN selection process has been a scam from the beginning. ICANN showed this in their selection process when they chose industry insiders who were already benefiting from the existing market.

    This is just the beginning. First the selected registries are targetted for their obvious transgressions. Once those have been proven and precident set, ICANN is the next target.

    I fully expect the turned down registries to strike the second and final blow. The momentum is in their favor as is the law.

    ICANN blew it. Absolutely blew it.
