That’s a whole lot of work.
If you visit the new top level domain comments site today, you’re going to be doing quite a big of pagination before you see any unique comments.
That’s because one person — a trademark manager at Sunkist Growers, Inc. — has submitted a whopping 467 comments on individual applications.
They’re all the same comment. But this must have taken some serious time given how cumbersome it apparently is to submit comments.
The comments are about adding rights protections to the proposed top level domain names.
Although 467 identical comments is a lot, I give the submitter credit for not just submitting the same comment on all 2,000 application. They appear to be targeted only to applications that don’t have added rights mechanisms. It even applauds a few registries for their added efforts at protecting trademark holder rights:
“…Such additional mechanisms may include, but are not limited to, the blocking mechanism put in place by ICM Registry for the launch of the .XXX gTLD, the blocking mechanism proposed by Uniregistry, Corp. in its gTLD applications, or the Domain Protected Marks List (DPML) proposed by Donuts, Inc. and DMIH Limited in each organizations’ respective gTLD applications.”
To date there have been 1,806 public comments on top level domain applications, but most of them are form submissions in support of particular applicants or opposed to particular strings.
