Woohoo! It's about time!

...the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the group responsible for the domain name system, has suspended the DROA’s ability to process new registrations (PDF) and may to terminate it completely.

While this doesn’t mean that the DROA is completely out of business, for reasons I’ll explain in a minute, it is a strong blow for webmasters everywhere, even if it raise some serious and uncomfortable questions.

I know I am bumping an old thread but I have not seen anymore about the Domain Registry of America suspension.

Any news?

Unfortunately, the droa.com site appears to still be working.

There should be an exception from the prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment in the US Constitution just for them. </rant>

That's too bad. I received these fake, spam like letters in the mail when I was registering domain names. It's too bad that some users will be unable to realize that this is a scam to transfer their domain for extremely inflated pricing.
