Again, this is another reason why I've been trying to move to a central registrar database -- even if the admin disappears, we still have full access to the important data.

This is pretty typically how it goes... We see if anyone is even still interested in the TLD, and if not it gets removed.  Considering the lack of registered domains in that zone, it doesn't seem likely that it will survive.

This, yet again shows us that admins, must be reachable in a reasonable time frame, which in the case of a T1 should be hours, not days.

Why would anyone take our position on .ing seriously when admins come and go with no warning..?

I say put the TLD up for someone else to run, and if no one wants it within a week it ceases to exist.

We should probably start discussing, then take a vote as to what we want 
to do about the zone...

1) If there is interest, we can transfer the zone to another registrar 
and try to reconnect users with their domains.

2) We shut down the TLD, remove 
records, and no longer carry the 
zone under OpenNic.

3) We continue trying to contact Neo.
