    Accordingly, although we must request full contact information from each of you so our systems and webpage may continue to function we will restrict processing and data transfers as much as possible. When logged into DNForum.com we will display only your chosen handle and no other specific information unless requested by you.

    Onward and upwards;

VeriSign's attempt to sell three- and four-character dot-bz domains on eBay appears to be a dismal failure. Auctions are closing left and right without a single bidder. That anyone in corporate would think that more than a handful of net newbies would pay anything at all for a Belize country-level domain name is hilarious.

I hope the Belize government got a good chunk of cash out of VeriSign on the front end, because I doubt that it is making squat if its return is on a per registration basis.

Of course, NOW! When they started it was at the prices above. They were trying the confusion method, what with the .BIZ TLD being new.
