Nominet has been doing things wrong....
...for some time now, and especially since 2016.
As a non-profit organisation, that was created to ensure fairness as well as charity giving, it was a shining light on how the UK internet industry would be run, compared to some other naming registrars I've had to deal with.
But it changed course, shut down various bona fide operations and then set about following a different doctrine, that seems to be a way for the board to award themselves pay rises, and have shut down mechanisms where due criticism could be aired and ensured that they can control whoever sits on the board, thereby preventing anyone "questioning" with their management.
Sounds like a case of "Trumpism"?...and we all know how that ended as it collapsed like a deck of cards....
Sadly, I'm not a member of Nominet, but given the case made on the publicbenefit website (and having been involved in website hosting and domain name registration for over 20 years), I am shocked to see that a significant number of the Top 20 webhosting compaies are NOT backing this campaign....and especially NONE of the Top 10 are backing it (at least publicly) !!
