    Are You Calling Twomey A Liar?
    by jberryhill on Sunday March 28 2004, @12:59PM (#13283)
    User #3013 Info
    Look, Mr. Twomey was perfectly up front during the WSIS conference, when he said, "At ICANN, anybody can attend meetings, appeal decisions or go to ombudsmen."

    (http://www.techworld.com/news/index.cfm?fuseactio n=displaynews&newsid=750)

    Now Mr. Twomey says there are ombudsmen. For Prof. Katsch to dispute this statement, and to therefore call Mr. Twomey a liar, is the kind of rabid ICANN criticism that shows there is no depth to which bombthrowers like Prof. Katsch will refuse to lower themselves.

    This kind of rabid denial of reality is precisely why objective websites like www.icannfacts.org will remain a much more reliable source of accurate and current information about ICANN.

    hehe Old news. :) See the post I made [icann.org] to the GA list in December. And, only a couple of days ago ICANN announced [icann.org] that they'd picked a recruiter in Australia (where Twomey is from, hmmm) to look for an Ombudsman. The PR firm is also from Australia, hmmm.

    Uh, accurate and current? How about biased and one sided? I didn't see the Higgs document regarding alt.roots or many others that have been clear, concise and professional.
