    Nothing like waking up to a nice, on target post by fnord.

    I invite you to go back over the applications for new TLD registries and see which ones had the sunrise and landrush messes that gave us this, and which proposed, simply, first come first served.

    Which were willing to invest, or had already invested in the infrastructure to handle a simple first come policy, and which weren't confident enough in their engineering ability and had to engineer, instead, a political solution that they later chose to milk for all it's worth?

    Re: So wouldn't the WLS help then?
    by Anonymous on Wednesday July 17 2002, @01:12AM (#7928)
    In your scenario, the WLS should help with some of these names, because once they expire users would have an opportunity to register them rather than the names landing in the pockets of speculators.

    Re: So when is Directi going to be brought up for
    by Anonymous on Wednesday July 17 2002, @02:32AM (#7935)
    With so much that has been said about Directi and its business practices, when is ICANN going to take action against this rogue registrar and suspend them or put them on some type of probation? They have to be in violation of the registrar accreditation agreement. So where is the enforcement? Are we just sitting twiddling thumbs until the Office of Ombudsman is created? Any answers?

    I bid on a name through Directi. The process was that for $20, you could place a bid on a name that would be placed in up to 6 different registrar ques. Toward the end of the landrush period, Directi sent an email saying that they would extend the application period beyond that of Afilias and once names were selected, they would keep the bidding open only on the names they successfully secured. I immediately sent an email to Directi to refund my money and also an email to Afilias to tell them that in my opinion, Directi was committing a fraud. That evening, another email came from Directi stating that they received a few negative feedbacks and were changing their previous decision. Instead they kept the bidding open through July 7th, beyond the Afilias deadline but before selection by submiting applications for all domains under their corporate name. For successful registrations, those who had bid the highest for a name as of July 7th have approximately one week from the date they recieve notice that the name has been secured to make payment or the domain is offerred to the next highest bidder. While I don't know what is or is not allowed, this may explain why you see the Directi name on so many domain names at this time. In one week most of these should reflect the names of those who successful bid for the domain. I am not defending what they did, just offerring what I know of their process.
