Well written Danny. I am concerned about this as well and think it is entirely within ICANN's scope to deal with since they are the accrediting agency.

Enom recently dropped registerfly as a reseller citing
several customer-service related issues (and  of
course, registerfly is now an accredited ICANN

The problem with the Ombudsman's note is that here we
have a large population of registrants with probably
legitimate complaints that write in the hope of
getting assistance with renewal and other issues, and
instead they are being told by the Ombudsman "Sorry,
that's not my job".

Recent correspondence has indicated that ICANN
received in excess of 10,000 complaints regarding
registrars during 2006 -- see

It would be nice for those of us that take on policy
development activities to understand the nature of
these complaints.

I recall ICANN stating that they had developed and
implemented a ticketing system for the coordination of
customer service inquiries, yet to date we have
received no data from ICANN staff that categorizes the
nature of the complaints received.

Clearly this makes policy work much more difficult.

Will ICANN Staff ever provide the GNSO with an
overview of complaints against registrars?  One can
only hope that this will happen as there is no
registrants constituency within the GNSO to progress
the issue.

regsisterfly was so important to so many.
