RE: On-going Internet Emergency and Domain Names
One of the reasons that registrars are slow to take down sites that are paid with a credit card is because there is little financial incentive to do so....they've lost money it already, why have a department whose priority is speed if you can hire a person to do it at their own pace and minimize the loss? For almost all things prudent and effective there needs to be a financial incentive. For those registrars who take stolen credit cards, it's the rates and fees they are charged to process credit card transactions. It appears the rates that are charged and the penalties assessed aren't enough to dissuade them from these fraudulent transactions, which means that the monetary externalities of DNS registration abuse (spam, phishing sites, etc) are not fully assessed by financial institutions. We have a similar parallel in the cost of gasoline and the impact on the environment.

Other than the cool factor. > > I think the question is "why should the Internet be constrained to > engineering decisions made in 1992?" or victims of policy of that same 'vintage'... doing things faster isn't bad, doing it with less checks and balances and more people willing to abuse the lack of checks/balances seems like a bad idea. If you can get a domain added to the system fresh in 5min or less, why does it take +90 days to get it removed when all data about the domain is patently false and the CC used to purchase the domain was reported stolen 2+years ago? I don't mean to pick on anyone in particular, but wow, to me this seems like just a policy update requirement.
