    The DNSO is a joke. The GNSO is a joke waiting to happen. It will save the Board a lot of work by not having to reject Task Force Reports that are comical at best.

    It appears the DNSO should have sufficient funds for the remainder of its existence. -g

    Yeah, ICANN is a the ultimate Internet joke here. ICANN inhibited the DNSO and Internet development processes to such a degree, that development and productivity concerning the Internet has all but stopped with no will to move forward. All ICANN has done with its BSing the current Administration and others is screw itself.

      Also, the DNSO and its participants deserve credit for all or their hard work and tireless effort in developing new ideas and for their effort in advancing the direction of the Internet.

      However, ICANN itself deserves credit for being so dishonest and self-serving with its process and policy, only agreeing with the participants of the DNSO when it served ICANN's special interests. ICANN does not move forward in the best interest of the Internet or its participants and/or end users. ICANN only agrees with the DNSO (or others) when the bill fits ICANN's predetermined plan of how the Internet is to be in the eyes of ICANN itself.

      There appears to be no Democracy or U.S. Constitution that governs ICANN. ICANN serves itself to pay itself. ICANN serves to pay its real players. ICANN is a cheapskate of the worst kind. In so doing, ICANN has cheated itself and others.

      ICANN appears to be only an American scam in the eyes of the Global Internet Community. And it is. ICANN could care less about the Global Internet Community. ICANN only cares about paying its players and nothing else. ICANN and its policy and process is an example of one of the worst U.S. Government backed organizations visible to the common person.

      The U.S. Government backing ICANN appears to be a good example of what is
      going wrong with America today.
