    Soviet Societies Only Have ONE Party of Insiders
    by Anonymous on Friday July 15 2005, @07:58AM (#15720)
    Soviet Societies Only Have ONE Party of Insiders

    Only the "Insiders" show up.
    The "Insiders" define themselves to be the center of the universe.
    Soviet Societies Only Have ONE Party of Insiders
    The "Insiders" give themselves all the funding.
    The "Insiders" give each other awards.
    Soviet Societies Only Have ONE Party of Insiders.

    Who pays all of the people to show up ?

    Did anyone notice that ICANN really rolled out
    some of the thugs ? Manning, Crocker, Huston, et. al.

    Bret Fausett is part of ICANN. [Note the period.]

    "Bret Fausett is part of ICANN's very loyal opposition. Neither apologist nor core insider, nor ICANN opponent, he's a veteran member of the much diminished, but still slowly replenished, band of people who think ICANN can be reformed from inside and/or that ICANN is, on balance, a good thing."

    Bret Fausett is part of ICANN. [Note the period.]

    ICANN Staffers on a Nice Paid Vacation 24x7

    ICANN Staffers on a Nice Paid Vacation 24x7

    Come on, ICANN Staffers work really hard cashing
    those checks from Verisign. The ICANN Staffers
    also work hard on vacation throwing parties
    and putting on a good face telling "The Big Lie".

    You are paying the ICANN Staffers via your domain
    name taxes. Keep the funding going and the
    ICANN Staffers will keep traveling and "working".

    Discussing ICANN Draws Attention to ICANN

    ICANN thrives on attention.

    ICANN will spin any lies needed to keep themselves in the control seat.

    It Seeks Overall Control

    defer to council and staff to conduct their work
    by Anonymous on Tuesday August 02 2005, @08:32PM (#15767)
    While you have noted that you would not forward my responses and
    would wish that other Councillors (and I understand that you would
    not forward my responses and would 'anonymise' (is there such a
    statement supported by references, that would be most useful. In the mean
    time, I will defer to council and staff to conduct their work on this
    second portion of this review process which was conducted last year,
    and which led to the formation of ICANN. Some members of individual
    constituencies may understand the purpose of the GNSO constituency structure
    was first proposed. The most recent ICANN reform process that
    occurred a few years ago - was more focused on the structure of the
    questions I have one significant suggestion at this time and that is for
    another 'section' or 'dimension' to add to the development of the staff
    and the board as we "pioneer". While we may set the standard, we
    will also probably need to remember that "pioneers" sometimes have
    learning experiences that others bebefit from, but may also be useful to
    retrieve material from the supportive role of the Internet, is concerned
    about protection of its intellectual property, and provides services
    to assist corporates to protect their online brands - thus it
    could conceivably join 3 of the GNSO will be important to have such a
    fulsome purpose statement/description agreed by Council, going into the
    structure/efficiencies of the GNSO given ICANN's mission, core values (eg bottom up,
    consensus based policy development) and commitments (eg MOU).
