    new face of DNSO..... ICANN BOD appointed advisory

    This is the "reform" committee recommendation. ICANN board picks the chair
    of the new GNSO, and the GNSO steering committee includes "an appropriate
    number of other members selected by the ICANN Nominating Committee." The
    head of the GA will be chaired by the ICANN board selected chair of the
    GNSO. GNSO selects zero ICANN board members.

    A word missing...

    There is a word missing that was part of standard ICANN rhetorics: "bottom up". It doesn't occur at all in the document. Says it all, doesn't it?

    Or else this: "A reformed ICANN [...]
    should be an effective body in devising community consensus where possible..."

    "Devising consensus." Apt description.

    Evolution? Reformation? ICANN 2.0?


    I tried to read ICANN's statement but, as usual, it a verbose and incomprehensible in parts, as well as just a very poor attempt at restoring confidence... I public relations exercise, in reality...

    But it DOESN'T work and it is NOT good enough, NOR far-reaching enough in it's suggested changes.

    I have posted my own comments on ICANN and the UDRP which anyone is welcome to view at http://www.ad2000d.com/.NAME/

    I hope to significantly update and add to this over the coming weeks and months.

    The first sections are more to do with .NAME issues, but there are some key points about ICANN, the UDRP and Registrar Accountability as well.
