    Don't Rely on ICANN's 'Correspondence' Section
    posted by michael on Wednesday February 01 2006, @05:50AM

    ICANN. Open and transparent. Not.

    When ICANN wants to publicize a letter that supports its views, that letter gets online in ICANN's correspondence section. Some other things never get on there or get on verrry slooowly, if at all.

    For example, anyone seen any sign on the ICANN site of this letter from the ITU regarding registering within the ".int" domain (Jan. 16, 2006)?

    Nope.





    More info on the ITU's actual propsed rules, in document "E.910".

    User #2901 Info | http://istweb.syr.edu/~mueller/
    I've learned via sources that I can't divulge yet that my suspicions about the timing of the GAC and US Commerce Department letters regarding the .xxx domain were correct. The GAC Letter was advertised on the ICANN front page and made to appear as if it came first, and the DoC letter not advertised and placed in a way to appear as if it followed the GAC letter. And of course, when the Internet Governance Project prepared a carefully reasoned public petition advising ICANN's Board not to cave on the .xxx issue, and received hundreds of signatures and sent them to Twomey, Cerf, DoC and the Board, it never appeared on the correspondence section of the ICANN web site.
