Hi John,

Yesterday I wrote to ICANN Global Support Center <globalsupport at icann.org> 
to complain about not getting Zone File Access for two TLDs for close to 14 
months. Today I got this reply:

Dear Joe Wein,

Greetings from the ICANN Global Support.

I am sorry to hear about the inconveniences you are experiencing. Rest 
assure that I will put my best efforts to provide you helpful information 
regarding CZDS requests.

There is no defined time period that a Registry Operator must reject or 
approve a request. In general, a request is usually responded to in less 
than one month. On occasion, a response may take longer due to the amount of 
requests the Registry receives or other business factors.

If you would like to file a complaint with ICANN regarding a Registry 
Operator failing to provide zone file access, please submit the zone file 
complaint form (https://icannportal.force.com/compliance/s/zfa) to ICANN 
Contractual Compliance. They will review your complaint and reply to you 
within 5 business days.

If there is anything that I can assist you with, please let me know. If 
there are no questions or responses, this inquiry will be closed shortly.

Feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions.

Best regards,

ICANN Global Support

This of course is not a very helpful suggestion, as the complaints I filed 
last March using the suggested URI are still open and unprocessed and the 
ICANN ticketing system only allows one complaint per submitter per TLD at 
any one time. Other complaints are auto-closed as duplicates.

So I wrote back, explaining that to them. We'll see what happens.
