    it's always nice to see that dyson retains her sense of levity when it comes to the organization she (a) oversaw during its first steps toward disposing of open public input, and (b) can't seem to leave. maybe she can dispense some of her spritely good humor next time doing so would undermine whatever agenda authoritarians like kraaijenbrink or kooks like cohen are pushing, hm?

    E.D.'s Sorry-Ass Mistakes
    by Anonymous on Sunday January 26 2003, @05:00AM (#11029)
    ICANNwatch can keep kissing Esther Dyson's ass, but remember she's responsible for Afilias: My argument is that Afilias Directors, Afilias registrars (remember Afilias is a cartel of registrars), broke the Sunrise Rules themselves. The evidence is very clear. They have never challenged me on that, or taken me to court for my repeated demonstration of this, or attempted to dispute it, because they cannot deny what happened. And if people at the heart of Afilias broke the Sunrise rules, and if Afilias as Registry went ahead and overruled the rules by registering names that lacked (for example) data in the mandatory TM fields... even refused to delete those names when requested by the registrants themselves... then what kind of Agreement is that. If one party chose to break the rules at will, then the contract is broken from the beginning. I say this not to condone anything, but to point out the hypocrisy, and the fact that there was NO intact process, since those charged with upholding the rules were breaking the rules themselves. My argument all along has been that ordinary landrush consumers in their thousands lost in many cases large amounts of money for a product which failed to materialise because of maladministration, inadequate response, negligence, and the clearcut abuse of the process by people deeply involved with Afilias. Esther Dyson chose Afilias, and was ready to hand over .WEB. Instead, she gave them .INFO, and the Afilias Directors and CEO started stealing from consumers. But go ahead ICANNwatch, keep kissing her ass.
