RE: [policy] When Tech Meets Policy...

I can say from my experience working in a web development environment, yes. I can recall several cases where we needed to get a domain online quickly for one reason or another. Usually it revolves around the marketing department not being in-touch with the rest of the company and the wrong/misspelled domain name ends up in a print/radio/tv ad that is about to go to thousands of people and cannot be changed. We end up having to go get the name that is in the ad and get it active as quickly as possible. Personally I'm all for things working as quickly as possible, and I'm all for being able to "return" a domain within a reasonable time if needed. Perhaps it would be better to allow for domain returns, but shorten the time limit to 24 hours. That should be long enough to catch a typo, but too short to be much use for traffic tasting. -Justin Scott | GravityFree Network Administrator 1960 Stickney Point Road, Suite 210 Sarasota | FL | 34231 | 800.207.4431 941.927.7674 x115 | f 941.923.5429 www.GravityFree.com
