    Re: Board Squatters on ICANN Senior positions
    by Anonymous on Wednesday October 15 2003, @12:50PM (#12471)
    Very well noted. Cohen is back. Kraijenbrink is awaiting the next opportunity, looking for ccNSO Council, or ccTLD-elected Board position. ...

    The cult of secrecy
    by Anonymous on Wednesday October 15 2003, @04:09PM (#12472)
    ICANN's cult of secrecy began with its very first public meeting in Cambridge. The chief proponent of that secrecy was boardsquatter Hans Kraaijenbrink. Now that he is history ICANN should have improved its record on secrecy and reconsideration rejections .

    Maybe unlike the wicked witch in The Wizard of Oz he isn't "sincerely dead". Is it possible that his ghost is haunting ICANN?

    ...when I don't entirely disagree with what you have to say Michael.

    Don't put on your "I told you so" t-shirt yet, but you might want to at least iron it.

    Violation of Article III, Section 5.2

    User #2810 Info
    Bret's concern regarding violation(s) of Article III, Section 5.2 is all very well, but is almost nothing compared to repeated de facto violation(s) of the following Article III, Section 5.3 which states [icann.org] in part
    No later than the day after the date on which they are formally approved by the Board, the minutes shall be made publicly available on the Website...
    Now as near as I can tell ICANN got around this repeatedly through the artifice of simply not passing the minutes in the first place, some taking more than a year and a half to be ratified (which amongst other things meant that no longer existing Board members could not correct any errors and new Board members were voting on minutes of meetings they never attended). You couldn't ask for a better Mickey Mouse gong show. -g
