    Re: Why 72 hours?

    Anon AKA cowardly anonymous XTNS flack person writes:
    Where did this 72 hours thing come from? XTNS from day-one of launching these domains said that activation of them would be in the near future and once each domain is activated THEN it would take a further 48-72 hours to activate each individual registered name.
    Oh, I see. So that is 72 hours plus the near future. If that near future is sort of like the near future (5+ months) it takes XTNS to transfer a .com name they supposedly own then I imagine those few who have bought names might see them work before they receive a billing for another year's registration if they're lucky.
    Why is this so hard for you to understand?
    Because the press releases and other statements clearly state that the system works now. These are two incompatible alternatives so forgive me for my cognitive dissonance. The press releases do not jibe with what you are saying here and at XTNS (nice black on black color scheme BTW).
    Were you bashing Afflias and Neulevel early this year for not "proving" that .info and .biz are working?
    Yes I have bashed Afilias and NeuLevel. That is what is so great about this satire. One clueless person can put up a website selling thin air and to all intents and purposes be indiscernible from huge megacorps who paid ICANN $50k. I commend you. This is a brilliant masterstroke. -g

    Their system has approximately zero to do with the VeriSign ml testbed. How long do you think VeriSign and RealNames and MicroSoft are going to allow their names to be bandied about to help sell this scam? Perhaps a real 72 hours, and the long weekend is almost over, -g
