bobbear Posted May 11, 2007 Share Posted May 11, 2007 There is a Consultation Paper on the Review on Administration of Internet Domain Names in Hong Kong available at http://www.ogcio.gov.hk/eng/pubpress/downl...omainreview.pdf or via the HKDNR website newsreel. Comments are invited on the recommendations before finalising any proposals on changes and arrangements. At present, the responsibility for the administration of all .hk domains rests with HKIRC who acquired the Hong Kong Domain Name Registration Company Limited (HKDNR), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the JUCC, (the previous administrator of .hk domains), for that purpose. The consultation document itself makes fairly interesting reading. In particular the "Guiding Principles", which make no mention whatsoever of any basic 'ethical' considerations concerning domain registration & use such as legality, honesty & integrity or even spamming as one would expect to be enshrined in a defined and applied Acceptable Use Policy which one would have thought would have been an important 'guiding principle'. That isn't much of a surprise to anyone like me who regards the registrar HKDNR as little more than a 'front' company to criminal fraudsters, zombie botnet controllers & spammers by its apparent unwillingness to apply its own registration agreement/AUP to suspend even the most blatant crooks, not to mention the burgeoning number of spammers who are exploiting the apparent 'domain for life' policy of HKDNR, no matter what fraudulent, spamming or abusive purposes the domain is used for.
