Ross, this is nonsense. Most of the problems in this industry come either from unethical registrars or from resellers, who (1) don't understand what they are doing or (2) don't care what they are doing.

It is fundamentally unfair to punish the smaller companies, who are trying to distinguish themselves from our competitors, because of the unethical acts of our competitors or, frankly, the unethical acts of the resellers of the bigger companies.

More and more, registrars are being told *exactly* how to do business. We should just go back to the days of having only one registrar, because no one will know the difference soon anyhow.

Rather than dictate how and when we all do something, why don't we hold the unethical agents responsible for their behavior? If the problem is bad apples, then don't throw out the entire bushel.

Ross, I have no doubt that would be Tucows' preference.

Its important to our customers that the gaming stop. If gaming wasn't an
issue, we wouldn't need these overly complex impositions on our
processes. This isn't about libertarian pretensions Tim, its about the
failure of industry to regulate itself in a manner that evenly handles
consumer rights in addition to its own capital interests.

Its called a long-term view of a healthy industry segment - which I
believe to be the preference of most people that are serious about this
