ICANN comment periods on policy proposals don’t normally garner much attention. In the case of the current comment period on proxy / privacy services, however, things are very different. To date several thousand comments have been filed, while the topic of the policy proposals has received media attention across hundreds of outlets.
Today, however, I noticed some people referring to a .wtf domain name.
It’s a single page site which mirrors the letter drafted by several civil rights groups and activists addressed to ICANN on the subject of whois privacy.
The choice of the domain is interesting and, arguably, appropriate. But ICANN might not be overly impressed and could lodge a UDRP. If they did, however, how would that play?
This could be an interesting one to watch!
