Then take a look at the case of the Afilias Director Philip Grabensee, who was happy to be named as Registrant for 100's of Sunrise applicants - and again WIPO demonstrated that fraud was carried out in his name.
His argument was that he was acting for clients.
My argument is that a person intimately involved in the industry should have made himself fully aware of the consequences of fraud, the cost to others, and should have shown discretion instead of just participating in a bandwagon which was out of control and a process which was fatally flawed.
As an Afilias Director, he is part of the Board which may take on Jeff Davies in court.
As a Sunrise applicant and participant, he may justifiably be challenged about the part he played.
You look at Lubsen, at Fogel, and the fakes their associated registrar companies submitted for profit... you look at the range of fakes submitted by a third Afilias director Govinda Leopold through her company... you look at a fourth Afilias Director whose company was responsible for the 4981 Plankenstein fakes being sponsored for half a million dollars... and here, on the Afilias Board, is Philip Grabensee too... I would have hestitated to join that "esteemed" company myself...
The one man of honour in all this was Robert Connelly, the Afilias Director who reigned his interests and described the process as "an abomination" which was harming consumers. He had the principle to put what was right before what was transparently NOT right...
Of course, the Afilias "spin machine" soon set about re-casting him as a "malcontent"... the classic but crude technique of marginalising a critic.
What we see in the .info release is a process which was wrong in the first place, which was exploited from inside and outside the Afilias Boardroom, which was not defended properly even in its flawed state, and which through negligence, fraud, and incompetence resulted in loss to innocent consumers.
