    You've given zero evidence that it was pirated, by Ray or anyone else.

    There's considerable evidence that some .info registrants were told they had been granted the name by their registrar, only to be told later that that wasn't the case. This was apparently the result of a less than real time WHOIS. You are presumably one of those put out by this. Your beef seems to be with Afilias and/or your registrar. Repeatedly anonymously heckling Ray over it makes you look the fool. Your inability to register enum in one of the other TLDs in which it is available, or register something including the string enum in .info and publishing something there (assuming that was your intent, rather than speculation), makes you look the bigger fool. But you're in luck, sourgrapes.info is still available. -g

    User #3226 Info | http://www.enum.info
    To: "anonymous"

    I registered the domain name enum.info through the Afilias landrush process. The registrar of record is IDRegister.com located in Israel. I reside in the United States. There is not an employee at IDRegister that I could name. I am sure they have no idea who I am. Other than a few e-mails I have had with Afilias customer service, I do not know anyone employed there. I am sure they have no idea who I am. When the .info landrush results were posted, I was notified by IDregister.com and they charged me for the enum.info registration. This is all that I know. I do not know what more I can tell you. Lastly, I do not appreciate your libelous approach on a public comment forum. I do not think any reasonable person would. This will be my only public reply to the subject

    People like you help the staff and management of ICANN convince the public and themselves that their critics are all a bunch of paranoid losers, inventing imaginary conspiracies and grousing about how they're being ripped off out of sour grapes over failing to grab the speculative registrations they wanted.

    I, myself, follow the old adage "Don't attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by incompetence." Pretty much everybody agrees that the .info rollout was a major screwup, with weeks of chaos before some semblance of order emerged. During that period, lots of crap happened, like people being informed they successfully registered domains that in fact somebody else already got (or even that were not able to be registered in the first place, because they were on the ICANN restricted list, like biz.info), or people being charged for registrations that never happened, or people succeeding in registrations but being unable for weeks to successfully update their name servers to actually use the domains. I have no reason to believe that all of this was part of an evil conspiracy rather than just the registry and registrars bumbling around making mistakes.
