Re: SRS registrations

Dean and all,

  I completely agree with your evaluation here.  NSI indeed needs
to slap down HARD DN registrant abuse of this nature, amongst other
forms.  I believe that NSI has recently done a much better job in this

  However the same needs to apply to the ICANN "Accredited Registrars?"
as well.  In that Register.com is the only one operating "Live" presently
we have not seen this same vigor coming from the ICANN.  Case in point
was the wwwtabnet.com vs tabnet.com incident that I believe I was
the one to point out.
