SOCHI, Russia — The deluge of applicants hoping to volunteer at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics is surprising. At the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games there were no volunteers. People were conscripted into their roles by the Communist regime.
Domainer from Pakistan Promotes Death
Domainer from Pakistan Promotes Death, this article was reported to various news & bloggers around the internet but the reason I posted it here on DomainingLaws.com is because the threat was geared toward me through a Facebook photo tag and because Facebook is linked to my iPhoine the images you see came from my iPhone…I captured them along with several images which are merely screenshots… Really here there is a right to the freedom of speech under the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, however, to make idle threats or terrorist threats then that changes things up a bit. Are domainers really threatening other domainers with death?
Well, I can tell you I certainly took it as such and went as far as reporting the incidents to authorities. I blocked out the names to not further cause violent outbreaks. What you do not see here is all the other comments by Facebook domainers or friends of friends who may have made any comments. Nevertheless, the threats were taken serious and for people to make such threats is not called for. Bringing you up to speed, the only reason deciphered here is the threats were made due to a viral video depicting anti-Islam statements. Of course, I had nothing to do with the video or the distribution thereof, but I would say this is what spawned the threats. I happen to be neighbors with the author of the video and perhaps that is part of the problem here. But really, who knows? My reasoning for posting this article is to further educate the public. Irregardless of your views no one should make terrorist threats and each threat should be reported to the following agencies:
Remember, we all have a duty to report such incidents as we must keep any and all countries safe from any and all terrorists. I would enjoy hearing your comments here, I will respond to each comment… Be safe and until next time….
Here is a link to one what seems to be the full movie on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAiOEV0v2RM
A “domain developer” from Pakistan has sent out a message by tagging a group of people on a Facebook photo, threatening them with death.
Sent to a total of 47 people, the death threat was related to the current violence by Muslim fundamentalists around the world, regarding a movie circulating on YouTube.
The note read as follows:
“Bloody Americans, We just Hate You, who made fun & insulted of Our “BELOVED PROPHET (PBUH)” …
Its your Time to end, Now wait and watch what muslim and ALLAH will do with you….
You have to pay for what you have done…..
“Disrespect of ISLAM and OUR PROPHET (PBUH) == HANG TILL DEATH & BURN IN FIRE”
According to one of the recipients of the Facebook message, the business web site of the sender is dedevelopers.com which is based in Lahore, Pakistan.
The matter has been now reported to Facebook, as making threats is a clear violation of its policies.

ICANN on gTLd Public Announcement
ICANN reports: ICANN has authorized the bulk transfer of Planet Online Corp’s gTLD domain names to 2030138 Ontario Inc. dba NamesBeyond.com (“NamesBeyond”) due to a compliance action taken by ICANN that resulted in the de-accreditation of registrar Planet Online Corp.
ICANN has also authorized the bulk transfer of Name For Name, Inc.’s .com and .net names (which represent all gTLDs currently sponsored by Name For Name) to NamesBeyond as the result of the termination of Name For Name’s registry-registrar agreement with Verisign Inc.
The affected gTLD registries are processing the bulk transfers. Former registrant-customers of Planet Online and Name For Name should soon receive notices from NamesBeyond of the transfer. Customer questions about the transfer should be directed to NamesBeyond, using the contact details provided below. Additional information about these bulk transfers is provided below.
Q. Why were these transfers authorized by ICANN?
A. Planet Online’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) was terminated by ICANN on 6 July 2012 because of Planet Online’s failure to comply with the requirements of the RAA. (The notice of termination is posted at http://www.icann.org/en/news/corresp…12jun12-en.pdf [PDF, 222 KB]) As a result, Planet Online is no longer permitted to register or manage gTLD registrations.
Name For Name’s Registry-Registrar Agreement (RRA) with Verisign to register .com and .net names was terminated by Verisign on 16 July 2012. Name For Name currently has only five gTLD registrations under management, all in com and net. ICANN has notified Name For Name that it is in breach of its RAA with ICANN, which will be terminated on 2 August 2012 if the breaches are not cured. (The notice of breach is posted at http://www.icann.org/en/news/corresp…12jul12-en.pdf [PDF, 250 KB].)
ICANN authorized these bulk transfers pursuant to the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy to ensure that the registrant-customers of these registrars would not be harmed by their registrars’ discontinued ability to manage the registrations.
Q. How was the gaining registrar selected?
A. ICANN followed its De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure (see http://www.icann.org/en/processes/re…re-01oct08.pdf [PDF, 119 KB]) to identify a gaining registrar for Planet Online. Through this competitive process, NamesBeyond was selected. Due to the small size of Name For Name (5 domain names) NamesBeyond was asked to also accept these names.
Q. Will NamesBeyond attempt to contact the affected registrants? What should former Planet Online and Name For Name customers do?
A. Former customers of both registrars should receive a notice of the transfer and instructions for continued management of their names from NamesBeyond. Affected customers who do not receive notices from NamesBeyond should check the web page prepared by NamesBeyond for this bulk transfer at http://www.namesbeyond.com/planetonlinebulktransfer for additional information and contact details.
Q. Do registrants have to pay a fee for the bulk transfer?
A. No, there is no cost to registrants for the bulk transfer. Unlike a normal inter-registrar transfer, the registration terms will not be extended by a year. Accordingly, it is important to contact NamesBeyond if your registration will expire soon in order to maintain your registration.
Q. Why do former Planet Online and Name For Name customers need to contact NamesBeyond?
A. Neither Planet Online nor Name For Name participated in the bulk transfers therefore did not forward billing information to NamesBeyond. Accordingly, all registrants must provide updated billing information or transfer their names to other registrars.
Q. What if affected registrants want to select a different registrar?
A. Registrants will continue to be able to transfer their registrations to other registrars under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (see http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/). Note that NamesBeyond may deny transfers for the first 60 days following the bulk transfer, at its discretion. This 60-day period is permissible under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy and is intended to help protect registrants. The registrant may need to renew names that will expire during the first 60 days following the transfer to NamesBeyond by contacting NamesBeyond at:
+ 1 877 321 1356 (Toll Free)
+ 1 817 564 2994
+ 1 215 750 2660
Q. How will Planet Online and Name For Name customers know if a message purportedly from NamesBeyond is legitimate?
A. The message from NamesBeyond should direct you to its website hosted at http://www.namesbeyond.com or refer you to other contact information provided above. If you believe a message purportedly from NamesBeyond is not legitimate, you should navigate to their web page directly, at http://www.namesbeyond.com/planetonlinebulktransfer.
