Afternic has a flawed domain verification system that doesn’t prevent others from listing your domain names.

The guy tortured himself for no reason. He could have removed it in 5 minutes and gone on with his life.

Yes, he can add the domain to his account with the TXT verification, and once it's added to his account, he can remove it from his account.

And anyone else trying to add the name to fraudster account later will be forced to do so via TXT verification system, so won't be able to add.

No choice. If at all once has to remove the name they've to create an account.
I don't have account with SEDO and I simply send email to remove 'my domain' listed by someone else in Sedo, and they ask for 'proof of ownership'. I send screenshot and they remove it promptly. The same should be done by Afternic too.
