    User #3551 Info

    now i realize i am just a jilted applicant, but sense ICANN doesnt get accountability anywhere else.. here my brief read on "THE PLAN"

    1) Did anyone actually see this June 24th.??

    2) isnt the follwing the weakest comment you have ever seen...especially in a "fair, open and transparent manner" organization.

    Any other questions regarding this RFP following the application period should be addressed in writing to general-counsel@icann.org (oral inquiries will not be accepted). Directing questions, or attempting to engage in conversations with members of the ICANN staff, Board of Directors, outside legal counsel, or consultants between the time this RFP is issued and until the Board makes its final decision could be grounds for summary rejection of the application (see Open and Transparent Communications below).

    3) heres the new bottom up process.

    The Board, in consultation with ICANN President Paul Twomey..........

    4) they didnt publish schedule B as to who can reapply. We were put in limbo by the outside staff.

    Hey Page, you'd have lots more credibility if you hadn't parterned with New.net. Sleep with dogs, wake up with fleas. Now you've shot your wad banking on New.net, and it appears that, had you waited, you'd now have a good shot with ICANN. But now ICANN can say: "Well, it appears Page Howe and .kids chose to work within New.net's system, so they don't really need ICANN ... Next! You blew it.

    "We were put in limbo by the outside staff." Then you took yourselves out of limbo. What are you crying about now? You shot yourself in the foot with a shotgun, now you blame ICANN. How silly you look, a subdomain (.kids.us)will now succeed where you didn't, in large part due to YOUR mistakes, not ICANN's.
