If it can be proven to have been cicumvented, sure. I don't think anything
beyond conjecture about that has been said 'publicly' yet, has it?


Why yes, you must have missed the messages. The domain owner and ISP
and registrar all clearly stated that they had received no notification,
and had not approved the transfer. Notification and approval are
required by the process. Therefore, it was proven to be circumvented. QED.

Now, as to the actual mechanism of circumvention, that has not yet been
revealed here. All we know is that a registry *supervisor* stopped the
workers from finishing their investigation.

Clearly, this .com registry operator is not trustworthy.
