  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    ICANN DON'T GIVE A ****

    I CAN ONLY speak from my own experience and also my perusal of clear and evident corporate and trademark ILLEGALITY, BIAS AND UNFAIRNESS in domain name dispute panel decisions.

    ICANN are demonstrably not interested enough in Consumer Rights and fairness; they clearly wish to maintain the Status Quo and do not wish to rock the boat for either Registrars, Big Brother or Big Business.

    Well, if they won't take action, WE WILL!!

    I say scrap ICANN and appoint a new body fairly and duly elected by the internet community AS A WHOLE.

    1. VeriSign - not an EU company
    2. IEDR (DomainRegistry.ie) - My betting pound
    3. ICANN - prohibited by bylaw
    4. IOD - not an EU company
    5. EC-POP - who?
    6. RIPE - not a domain registry
    7. Not the US - duh

    1. Nothing. They'll settle out of court and we'll never know. Then, suddenly, as if out of nowhere, Verisign will buy them or make a major investment.

    Oh, regarding other domain names, why not take a wee look at http://www.ad2000d.com/ and http://www.ad2000d.com/domains.htm ?

    If you check my site out, you will see I am not a cybersquatter and actually do not internet community a big service in many ways on a non-profit making basis!

    Try using your mouth to communicate instead of your posterior - you and your friend (maybe the same person, as far as I know) are just bull-sh***ing everyone... I know GNR pretty well thank you. They are a nice bucnh of English guys and know the ACPA does not apply here in England. They also know they have allowed and accepted and effectually autenticated many tens of thousands of non-personal .NAMES!
