[registrars] Our .BIZ Domain Name Applications stand cancelled

Hi all,

Directi had adopted a unique approach during the .BIZ Round Robin Landrush
to serve interests of Genuine IP Claimants and Trademark Holders. All in
good intention Directi submitted applications ONLY on behalf of genuine
trademark holders, and IP Claimants.

Public opinion however to our unorthodox method has been both good and bad.
Irrespective of our intentions and the fact that we have been heralded by
many genuine IP Claimants, there has been general unrest in the Registrars
community, the Registry and ICANN themselves about our methodology.

While Directi has always had only good intentions, and Directi has not
violated any legal provisions in its course of business, Directi does not
want the Registrar community and all other parties to have any hard feelings
against us. Past 1 week has been very taxing on us. We have had inquiries
from Registrars, and from the Registry, and in general it has not been fun
being treated as if we had criminal intent.

Directi has decided therefore to cancel all its applications in this .BIZ
Round Robin DNA process and not participate at all in this process. Directi
does not wish to harbour any ill-will with any Registrar.

If any Registrar still feels wronged by any of our actions, we are sorry to
have put you through any inconvenience.

Best Regards
Bhavin Turakhia
