    User #2810 Info
    Interesting points, Ray. It was discussed during the March 13 public forum, see about midway down the log. I reproduce it in edited form here, leaving M. Stuart Lynn's comments intact:

    Stuart Lynn: [New TLD Evaluation Process Planning TF/NTEPPTF presentation]

    Meeting in Accra, large exchange with representatives of new gTLDs
    Action plan up to the ICANN meeting in June
    Final report -- we are late
    Final report in June
    Personal comment: Have to find way forward. Evaluation can take a long time until conclusions reached.
    In the interim, community needs to give thoughts on how to go forward.

    Vinton Cerf: Did differences in gTLD types make finding criteria harder?

    Stuart Lynn: Have already grouped in different categories.

    And that was about it, though a little later during the Public Microphone time David Short of the IATA had a few mild things to say about the unsuccessful .travel application.

    So, tune in in June, assuming that one still can, and see if they've gotten anything else done besides their coup d'etat.

    I am similarily nonplussed about how they could put off the Redemption Grace Period for another meeting (they didn't even specify the next one, just a later one), whilst apparently allowing Veri$ign to continue on with its WLS proposal. -g

    User #2810 Info
    Having now sat through the relevant parts of the March 13 Public Forum again via the archive here, the discussion on New TLD evaluations begins at approximately 05:33:00 and continues to 05:40:00. Alexander's log didn't miss much, other than M. Stuart Lynn claiming responsibility for much of the delay (one assumes because he had a plan to work on). It is actually worth watching from 05:21:00 when Ram Mohan of Afilias reports on .info Sunrise problems, as that is likely to be part of the evaluation. On the latter, I expect that any future Sunrises will check TM data in advance, not after the fact (it was exceedingly stupid of the ICANN staff to OK that), and I predict trademark holders will be charged considerably more to cover the cost. -g

    look, if there is any relationship between the NTEPPTF article I posted and this specific comment thread, it is that hundreds of gTLD's would certainly go a long way to reducing the scarcity of any particular unique string at the second level.

    In a round-a-bout way, I appreciate this point being made. Whether this is an artificial scarcity or one of reality (for reasons of technical stability), is what I thought the NTEPPTF was assigned to help find out, based upon a stated and thought-out timeline.

    So what do you say to the guy who received confirmation, from his registrar, that he successfully registered enum.info, only to have it taken away by Ray Fasset.
    I'd say:

    1. Prove your (and, if he's a different person, his) allegations.

    2. Assuming such evidence exists, sue the registrar.

    3. Assuming there is also evidence that Ray Fassett somehow had something to do with you/him losing the name, sue Ray Fassett.

    4. If you/he can't manage 1. here at least, don't expect anyone to take your anonymous allegations seriously. -g
