On March 16, 2007 ICANN issued a formal notice of termination to RegisterFly, thus, exacting the strongest measure the ICANN organization can take. And like Uncle Buck circumcising a gnat, ICANN took the axe to RegisterFly...
"ICANN today issued a formal notice of termination of RegisterFly.com's Registration Accreditation Agreement (RAA).
ICANN has issued a letter to RegisterFly [PDF, 902K] indicating that it will cease operating as an ICANN-Accredited Registrar on March 31, 2007. Under the terms of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), ICANN must provide 15 days written notice to RegisterFly of its intention to terminate.
Effective immediately ICANN has terminated RegisterFly's right to use the ICANN Accredited Registrar logo on its website."
To date, ICANN has received countless customer complaints about RegisterFly. Allegations of fraud date all the way back to 2005, and even include reports that RegisterFly suspended customer accounts and domain names in retaliation against customers who complained of overcharging. In addition, ICANN has accused RegisterFly of inappropriately altering customers' WHOIS data.
How could things look any worse for RegisterFly? Well, just toss in some very dirty laundry about stolen company funds being used for escort services, liposuction and a Miami penthouse and you've got a complete recipe for disaster. These such issues were recently made public in the RegisterFly ownership lawsuit between the Registerfly owners (and ex-boyfriends) John Naruszewicz and Kevin Medina.
Uncle Buck Says: I like to carry it; you never know when you're going to need it. A situation may come up - say for example, someone has been drinking, and about to drive a loved one home, then I'd like to know I have it. Not to kill, no. Just to maim. Take a little off the shoulder. Swish! The elbow. Slash! Shave a little meat off the old kneecap. Fowap! Ooooo! You got both kneecaps? I like to keep mine razor sharp. Sharp enough you can shave with it. Why I've been known to circumcise a gnat. You're not a gnat are you Bug?
