    Errr, earth to mister clueless, hello to mister clueless, I'll be your waiter this evening. They don't have the .com, that is part of the joke. Why is it that ICANNWatch has turned into a moron magnet? Could it be that those who want the ICANN cash cow to continue are here spreading fsckedup responses?. Yup it is a joke.--g

    LOL! This is entirely too rich. They bought it back in March but didn't put a proviso in the sale that the For Sale site would be taken down, not just immediately, but sometime prior to their August launch so as not to cause confusion? That would take 5 minutes. Or they haven't figured out in the intervening 4-6 months how to put up a Coming Soon page? That would take 10 minutes. But no, it is still in the process of transfer:

    Domain Name.......... xtns.com
    Creation Date........ 2000-01-13
    Registration Date.... 2001-03-29
    Expiry Date.......... 2003-01-13

    Tech Name............ Verio Hostmaster

    I guess that explains their (often) claimed 72 hours to have an XTNS name function. The 72 hours it normally takes for a transfer to go through is 4-6 months and counting in XTNS's alternative reality time clock. This joke just keeps getting better. The sad part is that Joe Sims and Louis Touton are able to pass this loonieness on to M. Stuart Lynn to pass on to the Board to pass to on to Congress and the press as why they, and only they, have to assert control. As I've alluded to previously, one would be hard pressed to come up with a better satire on the current namespace situation. This is hilarious, please continue. -g
