Neustar and Afilias Jump on the No-Tasting Bandwagon by John Levine

John Levine writes:
In a message posted to the ICANN GNSO list, Avri Doria forwarded along a most interesting document from Neustar, who runs the .biz domain. Currently, registrars get full credit for all domains deleted during the Add Grace Period (AGP). Neustar proposes to change their registrar agreement so that each registrar will only get credit for deletions of 10% of their new domains, with a few minor exceptions for tiny registrars and bulk registrations due to one-time mistakes. They say they expect Afilias to propose the same change for .info.
