    What nonsense is this from Neulevel???

    Directi had NO RIGHT to SPAM ip claimants using PRIVILEGED contact information supplied by Neulevel without the company's explicit permission. Period.

    Legally, Directi can be charged for SPAMMING. Unless Neulevel gave them permission to use privileged information.

    Let's not act stupid. Any ordinarily intelligent man can infer that corruption may be at play if that was truely the case.

    Directi applications should be made null and void. Just another money making scheme to cheat netizens and businesses of more money and milk the .biz landrush II for all its worth.

    To condone such an action which everyone except Directi thinks is wrong is to make yet another sickening MOCKERY of this whole tainted .biz launch affair.

    From Neulevel's own policy regarding Registration Restrictions on .biz domains:

    Registering a domain name solely for the purposes of (1) selling, trading or leasing the domain name for compensation, or (2) the unsolicited offering to sell, trade or lease the domain name for compensation shall not constitute a "bona fide business or commercial use" of that domain name.

    It will be a violation of the Restrictions for an Applicant to:


    use the registered domain name in a manner inconsistent with the definition of “business or commercial use” contained herein.

    Violations of the Restrictions may be grounds for cancellation of a registered .BIZ domain name, pursuant to the enforcement mechanism discussed below.

    I think this is pretty clear. Directi have admitted that this is precisly what they are doing.

    Directi and Bhavin are perpetual spammers
    by Anonymous on Monday March 18 2002, @06:58AM (#5357)
    For the information of all concerned.

    Bhavin and Directi are perpetual spammers. This is not the first time they have done it. When Bhavin entered into the domain registration business, he and his company spammed right, left and center to all concerned in India.

    Even till date, no mails from @directi.com and his associated domains can be received on majority of Indian Webmasters owned/leased servers. He is banned outright.

    Its unfortunate that such a company gets away with everything.

    We still have the copy of the mail which he sent out more than 2 years back and all the Verisign partners in India and other webmasters from India can vouch for my statements.

    and he talks big about not helping squatters. he had sold his .info queue from $250 - 900. Did he ask for applications only from legal registrants? His site http://names.directi.com boasted of selling all the 250 spots in the queue.

    Will Bhavin and Directi care to stand up and refute my claims?
