I am not happy with this idea as I am not happy with the same
attitude of IAB and IANA! Then, what is the point to have
<> ?

I would like to suggest (if technically possible), every email
to pab-submit will get an autoreply that says something like:

"thank you for <blah blah blah>, <blah blah blah due recent
spamings>, your email will be forwarded to the pab *AFTER*
you reply this email stub <blah blah blah why>, the PAB will
make the best effort to reply every email, however the PAB
reserve to right for not replying your email,
<blah blah blah, why>"

Obviously, it has to be as polite as possible.

this will get filtered as PASS #1 above.

I would like to suggest we make about 10 - 20 "standard" points,
point #1: please visit <>,
<>, and read the gtld-mou at
point #2: the FAQs are at <>
point #3: <blah blah blah>
