Dear Jeff, I agree with you theoretically but you also might want to consider this: 1. The actual cause of delay (or registrant's suffering) looks like from Mitsu, rather than Nixi. When Mitsu filed the case, they might very well have just gone for the legal decision but what was the need to ask for a stay on domains transfer when it was pretty much evident that such a stay is only bad for the registrants like us? 2. Again, they have full rights to fight back but why forcibly make the registrants hostage? The case could go whichever way for years but had Mitsu not requested for the stay order, at least registrants would be unaffected from this fight. 3. If registry has taken such huge step, don't you think they would have some solid reason to back it up with? In any case, as we had heard him say numerous times that he is the grandfather of .in and can get anything done in the registry in past - why isn't he using his power, influence and all those claims that he made of working alongside with registry to sort this out instead of having to fight via a full-fledged, court case? WHY?
