I appreciate your excellent write up. When I read the allegations in the original article I kinda wanted more detail. You break it down very well with great attention to detail.

I'd like to place this here for those who only read comments:

.org registry rights belong to a non-profit - the rights were sold to a private equity group - somewhere between 50% and 90% below market rate. It was based on self dealing of the people given stewardship of the non-profit that manages .org

Basically, this is privatization Russian style. Not good. Even if you like privatization, no-bid stuff is just wrong.
