Internet domain-name sellers have turned the tables on global DNS overseer ICANN by using its own tactics against the hapless organization.

In a letter [PDF] to the California-based organization sent the day before it finally approved a "temporary" policy for the Whois service to bring it into compliance with new European privacy legislation GDPR registrars representing roughly a quarter of all domain names have asked for a "moratorium" on the new policy.

Everyone wants to play the delay. :)

Thinking of book or movie titles for the current state of GoshDarnPublicRelations nightmare.

When Worlds . . ummm, no . . When Bureaucracies Collide?

Dumb and Dumber and Dumbest and MonkeyBrains?

When Everyone is King Then No One is King?

1984 Meets Animal Farm Meet Fahrenheit 451?

Can't wait for the GoshDarnPublicRelations sequel.

2019: The USA passes a law that mandates that everyone's data (or some specific chunk of it) MUST be publicly available, citing a national security rationale ~"We can't allow evildoers to conceal their identity, avoiding our efforts to track and spy on them. People must allow us to monitor online activity in order to keep all of us safe."
