Thanks for the kind words, Mike.

I almost didn't believe it when I read it, but a very candid remark
was made in today's IRT comments archive by someone from NAF (one of
the UDRP providers):


"Complainants have pushed, and Panelists have taken the opportunity,
over time, to broaden the scope of the UDRP, but it started out as a
mechanism only for clear cut cases of cybersquatting."

For many of us who are appalled at some of the decisions that panels
make, a statement like that from the actual provider is invaluable in
the event one ever wants to challenge a UDRP decision in real court.
