    Rumor has it that the people in Florida
    have already started counting the votes
    for the next Presidential election.

    Their theory is, they want to be accurate
    and on-time, the next time.

    Vote early and often.

    Why would Stuart Lynn care ?

    He is getting his check each month,
    and vacation travel as a retiree plus probably
    a pension from the academic system that,
    no doubt, supports him and Mike Roberts.

    FURTHER RESOLVED [01.02] that a salary for Dr. Lynn at the rate of US$245,000 per annum and the other terms and benefits of Dr. Lynn's employment are approved;

    You did not list Mr. Bildt and Ms. Dyson
    and the vast constituencies that they represent.

    Will Hillary and Bill be joining them and bringing
    their constituencies ?

    You may have planet Earth covered with those 4.

    It appears that the "consensus" is that
    Messrs. Auerbach and Mueller-Maguhn
    should resign from the ICANN Board.

    Consensus is difficult to describe, but
    when one sees it, they know it. In this
    case it is clear that the ICANN Management
    and the ICANN Board do not want them.
    That harms ICANN.

    Karl Auerbach in particular will prevent more
    TLDs from being suggested. He wastes the
    Board's time. He is shallow, silly and appears
    to be a confused geek, trying to act like a
    seasoned Senator. The Board will retaliate by
    dragging its feet, and that results in no more
    TLDs from ICANN.

    Imagine instead, Bill Clinton on the ICANN Board.
    He would joke about the "Board Squatters" and
    make light of Stuart's British accent, but at the
    end of the day, new TLDs would be rubber stamped.
    Messrs. Auerbach and Mueller-Maguhn are only
    proving that they are not Board material. They
    should resign. They have not produced more TLDs.

    One problem is neither are probably capable of
    properly drafting their own resignation resolution. That speaks wonders about their ability to participate on the ICANN Board. They should
    resign. Maybe Stuart or Vint can pay the ICANN
    staff attorneys $100,000 to properly remove them.

    What is the procedure for the Board members to
    remove some of their own ranks ?

    Can the Board members vote to remove Karl Auerbach ?

    I bet a moron, without a job, could go out and
    collect 10,000 signatures on a petition from
    10,000 other morons.

    Does that mean this moron gets a seat on the
    ICANN Board ?

    Does that mean the rest of the Board or the
    world at large is then required to be subjected
    to some video performance by this moron ?

    Does that get anything done ?

    We need some big name politicians on the ICANN Board.

    Jesse Jackson would be awesome.

    Norm Gingrich and Rolf Nader come to mind.

    Arnold Schwartkoff from Desert Storm and the
    Terminator movies would kick a**.

    How about Al Gore ? Is he available ?

    Dump Karl Auerbach, he does not fit the part.
    He is too technical and boring.

    The ICANN Board should be 52.6% Women.

    If Karl Auerbach is not in someone's pocket, then
    that means he does not represent anyone.

    ICANN Board members are not there to represent
    themselves. People will dismiss Karl Auerbach's
    views, because he does not represent anyone.

    Karl Auerbach should resign from the ICANN Board.

    New.Net should be allowed to appoint someone to replace Karl Auerbach on the ICANN Board. Karl looked as silly as Joop did.

    Someone from France should be on the ICANN Board.

    50% of the comments should be in French.

    Canada should also have someone on the ICANN Board.

    The casting for Linda Wilson on the ICANN Board is perfect.

    Linda Wilson should stay forever. She clearly knows
    very little about the DNS. She is harmless.

    Linda Wilson should be more visible in the next ICANN Movie.

    Vint did a great job lining up thugs to dominate the microphone.

    That must have cost a bundle to fly them all to Sweden.

    They were very representative of the unsavory side
    of the Internet.

    If you look at the previous 10 or so comments they all seem to be from the same person.

    Maybe someone like Dave Crocker who was angry because everyone in the world (except Kent and his ICANN buddies) was against him.

    What better way to make yourself feel better and the ICANN board (full of crooks) look better? Go to ICANNWatch and post a bunch of anonymous messages pretending to all be for the ICANN Board!

    When is the last time that you saw this many pro-ICANN supporters post in one place? How many people who read ICANNWatch are against Karl?

    Puhleeeeeeze.
