    I suggest it is Afilias themselves who should be charged, starting with CLEAR ANSWERS (which he has refused to give) from Hal Lubsen the Afilias CEO about the profits made by DomainBank (which he has run) for submitting ineligible applications for profit in breach of Afilias's own rules. Or an explanation from Speednames (represented on the Afilias Board) about how they made around $500,000 for submitting 4981 fake names for Plankenstein.

    Call it a hunch that those questions are going to be asked under somewhat more compelling circumstances. ---voirdire

    "Proof of Concept" cannot be allowed to evolve into experimentation that results in innocents incurring avoidable losses. -truth cannot contradict truth

    If Afilias and DomainBank had the termidity to accept bogus sunrise applications without valid trademark information, that makes the mind reel. They should be reminded of the strict penalties of fubarious mopery in the 2nd degree under statutory regulatory codes. - landrushsnafoo

    Since it was reported there was complaints of a sunrise run amok, during sunrise and pre landrush, it would be difficult to believe that the registry did not know it was risking injury to landrush customers and ignored that risk. ---Tort-System

    Afilias is called upon to apologize for it's part in not doing a better job in protecting the integrity of the Sunrise and exposing the Landrushers to loss.

    LEGAL PLUNDER---The registry and registrars involved apparently saw nothing wrong with this.

    That looks like one helluva deviation from good business practice.
