    Go ahead, ask ICANN to do something and while you're at it ask how ICANN intervened to stop the .info sunrise process once it became obvious it was in meltdown from abuse and landrushers could be affected. Tip for the day blokes and sheilas * CRIME DOESN'T PAY *. xxxooo bangers and mash

    Actually, the easiest way to steal a name is to send Afilias a trademark from Bora Bora island and acquire the name during the sunrise period. Since Afilias can't read Korean doing the same from Korea would suffice as well. For an example of this working check out California.info or Stocks.info.

    Update: the NAACP has now changed the admin contact email. Kudos to Richard Lau of MyDomain who helped find the right contacts.

    They can yank your fillings out without even waking you up. They are the masters of stealing.
