why is the job of the registrar to determine if its a "phony"
bogus dodgy or fly-by-nighter from the real thing? anyone can apply
for a non-profit assocation. the rol of the registrar is to provide
a gateway into the registry. not play judge jury and executioner.
surely when you go buy a business name they dont even try to determin
if you are "dodgy" or not? nobody then tries to sue the governement
for issuing a name to a dodgy operator. you are totaly confusing
the issues.

registrars take application on good faith, susbequent problems
are solved by proper t&cs inc limitation of liability. if we could
stop trying to get the registrars trying to play god, life would be so much
easier for everyone involved.
