If you're going to use that logic you might as well use it on the telephone company for selling service to fly-by-night boiler room scamsters in South Florida and Montreal as well.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: One small problem with your logic. Telco is a common carrier; they are required by law to supply service to _anyone_ asking for service on the condition the potential subscriber has demonstrated an ability and willingness to pay for the service. Registrars are not common carriers, they are free to accept or reject customers at will; for most of them, all that seems to matter is getting the ten dollar fee every couple years or so. That should not be the case. Registrars could be our front line defense against spammers/scammers/phishers if the netters and or ICANN demanded it. But of course, ICANN won't demand anything. They _like_ things the way they are now. And of course there is always some idiot who will speak out and say "oh, but if we were to impose on Itzy-Pooh Corporation and refuse to carry their traffic because of the huge amount of spam they overlook, why then Itzy-Pooh may sue some registrar or something like that." All I can say to that is God Bless America and God Bless ICANN. Lets begin to turn the screws on the registrars and get them contractually committed to a few simple facts: If Itzy Pooh gets bounced by some registrar for malfeasance, no other registar can touch him until whatever got him bounced in the first place gets cured.
