    Your flaw is in assuming that a government rep knows more than the soccer mom in iowa. The rep does not. I know some soccer moms who know more about the net than most self-proclaimed experts.

    The only excuse for this plan is consolodation of power and mission creep.

    Your post is insulting and complete nonsense. I could most certainly vote for someone more qualified than any governmental representative and the large majority of Internet users could do just as well. Also, there is no reason why users from other countries should not and could not be allowed to the same as we who live in North America, unless their government (one like North Korea's) did not allow them to vote.


    You do not know any better than I how the Internet should be governed, nor does President Bush nor anyone appointed by him. Stuart Lynn now wants to be Czar of the Internet and to be able to tax its builders and managers. Stuart can kiss my keyboard and so can you.

    I agree, great plan

    Exactly. Why should ICANN mess about with trying to figure out who is a member, who is a registered member, who is a paid up member and who can vote when goverments already have perfectly robust voting processes that ICANN would be hard pressed to accomplish. I think Stuarts plan is just swell.
