    I can't by any stretch see why this would be within the purview of the Ombudsman. It is even a stretch to see why this would be within the perview of ICANN, but assuming that it is, only if ICANN made some sort of decision regarding it and some other party disagreed with that decision might the Ombudsman become involved.

    The UK Register has an interview [theregister.co.uk] with the new Ombudsman Frank Fowlie. It seems he might read ICANNWatch. If so, for the record my remark regarding the non-existence of Arctic drug runners was due to the comment made by well known ethnobotanist Wade Davis [mumblage.com], another Canadian, that Arctic idigenous peoples were the only human culture he knew of, past or present, that didn't make use of mind altering substances. Of course that sadly no longer obtains with drug, alcohol and substance abuse running rampant. -g

    And your point is? Oh I know, don't feed the trolls. But really, if you have a point can you make it somewhat less tangential so that someone other than yourself understands the reference, assuming that you do (an admittedly large assumption).

    Is it that there isn't a travel ban to Cuba for Canadians like there is for Americans? Is it that cuba-travel.com (obviously incorrect WHOIS data, but the owner Warren Weitzman is an inept spammer, telephone number and lame domain name collector although self-styled domain domain name pioneer, UDRP respondent who won in a split decision through successful domain flying, and who was charged in US meatspace for patient brokering, something else that doesn't have a parallel with Canada) should get first dibs on cuba.travel?

    All of this has zero to do with the ICANN Ombudsman of course, I can imagine his office being bogged down with complaints regarding the likes of cuba.travel and IPv6 quirks in no time. -g
