I was disappointed to receive the above form letter for 2 reasons:

1. There has been informed discussion in this forum on (a) which line of
the dns entry should be used as the address and (b) the many benefits of
renaming a selected line to something like "contact for dns renewal" so
there was no ambiguity as to who should be the recipient. I am grateful
to Geoff Huston for confirming my original inquiry in this area when I
originally posted these points.

2. The arbitrary choice of a blanket renewal date of February overlooks
the fact that the bulk of people commenting on this forum have advocated
an anniversary date of registration and the majory of people have
commented that they can advise what that date is.

Once again I challenge you to address these issues and rescind the
draconian February renewal rules previously announced.

Nevertheless, Seasons Greetings
