ICANN silent on ‘add/drop scheme’

Does ICANN plan to do anything about the outrageous hording of .com domain names — the so-called “add/drop scheme” — that we started talking about here last Friday?

Your guess is as good as mine because ICANN hasn’t managed to provide us with an answer to that question despite my first asking more than a week ago and having been promised an answer last Thursday.

Got to figure they’ll come across sooner or later … and you’ll be the first to know.
