There is a lot of misinformation and disinformation regarding this issue. I
have been involved in such processes locally and across the border and most
often this is the outcome of domain auction processes especially where
premium domains are concerned. As is the case in the domain name industry,
software is used to conduct auctions once the necessary policies have been
put in place. Auctions such as these ellicit global interest including
mischievous characters who are a handfull to deal with from a policy and
technical perspective. Even the most advanced and technically equipped
companies around the world are caught flatfooted from time to time.
I would suggest that we debate the issue based on facts and not
insinuations. Let us also be wary of sour grapes.
