Upon what verifiable facts do you base your endless speculation?
(1) Stop blaming the victim!
(2) Registrants can't "lock" domains, it's a registrar-lock. Users
can only ask that domains be locked. Stupid policy, bad results.
(3) This is a red-herring issue anyway, since there is no evidence
that Mel-IT ever sent notification, or even waited 5 days for a
response. The domain was hijacked in the middle of the night, in the
middle of a weekend -- a very odd time for confirming responses by a
staff that wasn't in the office answering the phones....
(4) Mel-IT has admitted it "failed to properly confirm", and a
"loophole" caused the error.
(5) Mel-IT has an executive and a lawyer that were both notified about
the problem, and refused to mitigate the damage.
(6) Stop blaming the victim!
