That is what should have been done :(

and then this section as mentioned earlier. which states that registrants
have to deal with a different set of Registrars of choice not mentioning
us resellers at all. I feel like that auda is saying if you are not a registrar
we are not a legitimate source for domain name rego, renewals and management.

that is a total disregard for us as resellers, that is uncalled for :-(

Was not me, I never compared the two, I hold both very seperate.

This is definatly not any near the lines of the ING or other invoice issues.
