How quickly history becomes distorted.
The conversation that we had did indeed center on the registrars capability
to deny a transfer based on a registrant "pending bankruptcy". No such
conversation occurred concerning anything remotely related to a registrar
doing bankruptcy searches on anyone - in fact, no such power is granted to
Registrars in any contract related to ICANN that I'm aware of. Further,
these conversations occurred in the context of preparation of the best
practices document and not the TF. Each comment received on the RC Transfers
BP doc were taken into account and included where appropriate.
Second, I believe that your participation as a registrant representative was
not permitted simply because you do not represent registrants. Once a GA
representative was identified that was willing to represent the interests of
the GA, they were appointed without any delay whatsoever.
