    Afilias, while it has had troubles, has done a fine job dealing with sunrise registrations. In fact, its sunrise procedure has become the model (or the lesson, depending on your view) by which all other sunrise procedures will be judged (and there will be other sunrise procedures at some point). Afilias has been much, much more responsive in dealing with registrations that are clearly in violation of its registry agreement and rules, unlike .name, which continues to do absolutely nothing about squatters like Adrian Miles.

    Comparing a magnitude 8 earthquake with an accidental nuclear meltdown does not change the fact that both will spoil your evening.

    User #2810 Info
    You can't be serious. It is still a helluva mess. Most people probably don't even know that the so-called LR2 (landrush 2) is going on at the moment. LR2 is made up of names that were fraudulently claimed in sunrise. Except that it isn't all .info names that were fraudulently claimed in sunrise, some of those are still being adjudicated, so there may or may not be a LR3.

    Meanwhile there are widespread reports (on the ICANN forum that M. Stuart Lynn says has been offtopic on new TLD evaluation but for three posts) of registrars not accepting LR2 applications from the public who will nevertheless submit applications, presumably for certain preferred clients, or for warehousing. What happened to first come, first served?

    Only someone watching all this on a regular basis and understanding much of the process (speculators and cybersquatters would be most likely to fit the bill) would have any chance of understanding what is going on, and even some of them seem confused. This isn't a fine job, it's a con job. -g
