    Even more major conflicts of interest??

    I feel the need to raise my point on GeorgeK's earlier comment on Suzan Crawford's "conflict of interest." If what he says is correct, and I believe it be, then let me be heard. I would like to expand on a comment made by George K on the 4th Nov. You asked, how difficult is it to find nominees without major conflicts of interest who are truely independant? I want to raise this point, Michael Palage, a current ICANN board member has been a walking conflict of interest for some time. His past/present dealings with afilias newstar, etc, and has now got his finger in the .xxx pie. I would appreciate your comments and thoughts on this board members conflicts...

    Conflicts Of The Lawyers

    They have a built in conflict of interest. That still does not excuse their interest. That still does not excuse their actions or give them the right to act in this manner.
    Does this mean Michael D Palage and Suzan Crawford are lawyers?
    Even if they are, what gives them the right to behave in such a way.
    Where as i agree that ICANN has issues that it has to face upto i believe Michael D Palage has more pressing issues that he must face upto. He is not putting his head in the sand but rubbing ICANN's face in it whilst they appear to be pre-occupied with being busy.No wonder countries like China, Cuba and Brazil want to dismantle and snatch away ICANN's control.
    If ICANN do not provide the internet community with a show of strength and leadership there is no reason why this won't happen.
    If Michael Palage were talking to the Chinese, would that constitute a conflict of interest?
