    ICANN.IANA Insiders Dominate UN Meetings in Geneva
    by Anonymous on Tuesday June 14 2005, @08:48AM (#15574)
    The Internet Society [with IETF-in-tow], and Jon Postel's cronies are in Geneva Switzerland to
    once again dominate forums with their Cyberspace
    Address Space Leasing business and multi-level-marketing pyramid schemes.

    http://www.nro.net/documents/nro24.html
    "The NRO has been supportive of the ICANN model as the most appropriate one to support the further growth and evolution of the Internet. The principle characteristics of this model are those of a lightweight technical coordination function, maximum delegation of responsibility to independent bodies, and the inclusion of the broad spectrum of stakeholders in the overall process. This model has proven well suited to the evolving structure of a global communications community with a significant private sector component, while maintaining openness to civil society and public sector interests."

    [Note: The NRO has not been around very long.
    It was created by three people who make a lot
    of money doing largely nothing leasing IP address
    blocks to suckers. Note the spin that the NRO
    "has been supportive of the ICANN model". How
    is that possible? ICANN pre-dates NRO. How can
    something support ICANN when that something did
    not exist. AH, of course, Jon Postel's cronies
    support ICANN and they are of course the Trustees
    of the RIRs and they now openly conspire to
    restrain trade and game the system via the NRO.
    They now see that people ignore them and they
    and ICANN no longer have any say in address
    space management as the world routes around their
    corrupt little club.]

    Go BRAZIL. You are on the right track seeing how
    corrupt the Internet Society is with their closed
    ICANN.IANA club who now arrives in Geneva to dominate all discussions.
