    And the lengths others seem to be going to cause dissention. I’m still struggling to see this as anything more than a power play, and a fight waged by people with vested interests. Nobody has actually identified anything fundamentally wrong with the way domain names are being administered as far as I can see.

    This is getting too bizarre. Why do you care what I think?

    That’s what an Internet forum is for. No answer it is then.

    Laurie, your obviously not aware that an auDA Director (EK) regularly purchases domain names on the expired auctions. In fact EK has a large portfolio – certainly more than Snoopy who has less than 30. Would the you call him a “rent seeker” or a “price gouger”?

    The fact is that auDA policy allows domain monetization.

    @Laurie Patton any views on my constructive post above?

    This is a direct quote from an email I received overnight from one of your industry colleagues. “Don’t worry about those muppets over at dntrade. It is literally “high-school” over there.” QED!

    The sad thing is, it's the domain owners paying indirectly for this circus.

    For every $22 pa you pay for your domains, $3 is going to Afilias to pay this clown.

    Agree. To me is is concerning that the registry is involved in politics, signing up members, getting “moderated” on blogs etc.
