Now I'm not sure I would have registered many of these. There's no traffic and it is going to take unprecedented local buy in for these to have any real value.
I agree, best to stick to what works.. ascii.

It has been the USA's obcession with itself that has been the main problem all along!

It would have been better in many respects if they had kept their precious Interwebs and everyone else had collaborated on a system without their input.

Re: WOW... How did this happen???

Huh... John Berryhill seems to shed some light on how Hexonet's CEO grabbed the goods: maybe it wasn't just an API/algo grab:

Quote:
“Verisign notified all .コム registrars and then made the domain names available to all .コム registrars for registration on a first-come, first-served basis.”

Which is why they were all then snapped up by one registrar CEO who realized a bunch of premium names would be made available, leaving the corresponding idn.com domain registrants screwed.
http://domainnamewire.com/2016/06/15...st-idn-launch/

If Verisign notified ALL registrars, and not just name.com and Enom, then they all had info that these were dropping beforehand. Would have been nice if we were CC'd on that.

Re: WOW... How did this happen???

So at the end of the day, nearly all the good stuff goes to one guy who never bought a single .コム before all this simply because he got the email as ceo of a registrar.. the same email we were all supposed to get as the registrants who did the research and made the purchases and put in preorders.. but never received that notice of deletion. The more I come to know this domain 'industry' the more I hate it.

Trading on insider information, perhaps?

Not only did he get tipped off about when names would become available, but he actually got a fucking list. Verisign effectively did his research for him.

ICANN is trade association for bloody registrars, nothing more, nothing less.

Years ago Schilling described the domain industry as the wild west. He wasn't wrong there. And seems nothings changed.

The advantage of going that route is that you can sit back and let the FEDs do all the hardwork, if they would only step up to the mark in the first place.
