    Board of Directors Verisign/NSI
    VeriSign Spreads the News About the Board's (non)Decision on WLS
    posted by michael on Friday February 20 2004, @02:27PM

    ICANN.org's front page carries the breathless news that Alejandro Pisanty's spear-carrying for ICANN insiders has been rewarded with an additional term as a Director on the ICANN Board. His term is now due to last until "six months following the ICANN Annual Meeting in 2006". But the real news--including the results of the Board meeting--is going by e-mail from Verisign to its affiliates.

    Dear VeriSign Registrar,

    On January 26, 2004, we concluded negotiations with ICANN staff concerning certain conditions for the launch of the Wait Listing Service (WLS). ICANN staff sought approval of those conditions from the ICANN Board during its February 18, 2004 special meeting. The ICANN Board did not grant the requested approval during its meeting, but adopted a resolution to place this matter on the agenda for the publicly held Board meeting scheduled to be held on March 6, 2004 in Rome, Italy. The preliminary report of the Board’s February 18, 2004 special meeting is posted on ICANN’s web site at the following URL:
