    I predict that the restrictions will still stand, perhaps with some very small concessions that don't matter.

    The ICANN Comedy Show gets better and better everyday.

    There is no bottom up in ICANN.

    The people making the decisions do not participate
    in any of the useless discussions.

    All these activities are distractions intended to
    divert people away from the poor performance
    of .INFO. By freezing the names, they make it
    appear as if the names are desirable. Market
    research shows that most people could care less
    about the ICANN TLDs and names under them.
    Many new systems do not even use domain names.

    The U.S. Government has announced that it will
    create a separate Internet, no doubt, away from
    ICANN and the rest of the kooks who are ICANN
    and ISOC groupies.

    It is time for all Americans to wake up to the fact
    that ICANN does not represent Freedom. ICANN is
    more like the Taliban, than the U.S. Senate. Look
    at ICANN, the leaders are self-appointed. The
    leaders are all mostly the same sex, religion
    and age group. The ICANN leaders seek to impose
    their views of the world on everyone via the
    global Internet. People that value Freedom are
    routing around ICANN. The U.S. Government will
    also route around ICANN.

    WIPO is a private company in Switzerland.

    Why are Americans being cowed by WIPO ?

    WIPO is unusual among international governmental organizations in that it is largely self-financing. About 85 percent - approximately 350 million Swiss francs - of the Organization's budgeted expenditure for the 2000-2001 biennium will come from earnings from the three major registration systems. The remaining 15 percent will come mainly from contributions from member States and sales of WIPO publications. All this income finances WIPO’s operating expenditures, slightly over 200 million Swiss francs per year.

    The use of the registration systems has grown steadily over the last few years, and that trend is expected to continue well into the new century. Long-term investments on office automation and headquarters premises are currently under way, financed by a special reserve fund.

    The emporer has no clothes.

    ICANN is a private company in California.

    Why are Americans being cowed by ICANN ?

    www.New.Net represents the Freedom most Americans enjoy. Route around ICANN today.

    A strong America does not need a weak single point
    of failure like ICANN.

    A strong America is built from strong individuals
    who each are educated and capable of making
    decisions about right and wrong.

    A strong America does not need ICANN to censor it.

    One of the beauties of America is that people still
    have the Freedom to demonstrate individually or
    collectively how incompetent they can be.

    ICANN has the Freedom to demonstrate to all
    Americans how incompetent it is, and it does a
    great job doing that, on a regular basis.

    Americans have the Freedom to laugh at ICANN.

    Americans do not need to be cowed by ICANN.
    ICANN is entertainment. ICANN is theater. ICANN
    is like watching small children play dress up in old
    clothes. ICANN is a living parody. Enjoy it, but do
    not take it seriously.

    "Receipt of the resolution was quickly acknowledged by ICANN President Stuart Lynn, so it appears as if the resolution got their attention."

    If people recall, Stuart Lynn said in Stockholm that
    he asked Mike Roberts how to prepare for an
    ICANN meeting. Stuart said that Mike told him that
    he needs to make sure he has one good controversial
    topic tossed out before the meeting to get people
    interested in attending.

    Could it be that ICANN has baited the Names
    Council and they have foolishly taken the bait ?

    Milton, if you think that's what ICANN has planned, what can be done about it?
