More Public Criticism of ICANN

In an article entitled "Fraudulent Domain Registrations", asks:
Does any domain registrar (outside of those responsible for .gov, .edu, and .mil) do any vetting of their applicants? It sure doesn't seem so.

And if you think it's easy to get phony domain registrations cancelled, think again. You can file a complaint, I mean a "Whois Data Problem Report" with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Just don't expect resolution of the problem anytime soon. The report winds up in the hands of the registrar, who may or may not act on it. Sure, ICANN has all kinds of advisories
that sound like registrars have to act relatively promptly. In truth, you'll find more teeth in a hen's beak.
