[registrars] serious .info problem
Many generic .info names are taken in the IP sunrise period.
Examples: "domain.info" "bank.info" "banner.info" "loan.info"

of domain names.
We have contacted Afilias about this issue, but did not get a satisfactory
I urge Afilias to reconsider their action. Generic names, which are
illegally taken during the sunrise period with fake IP Registration numbers,
must be returned to the pool immediately. The lengthy and costly "sunset"
procedure should not apply to fraudulent transaction.
