Yes, it's happened twice that the transfer policy has been changed on
the basis of submissions from the public. I told you this, but you
were resisting information at the time.

If I recall correctly, the subcommittee determined that the requested
change (to allow settled cybersquatting disputes to have the same
result as a URDP or court order) was incidental to the name policy
and wouldn't go against the principles the naming policy panel

Doesn't help you become a cyber^H^H^H^H^Hdomain name speculator
without a panel, sorry.
