    Too little, too late. The ICANN damage is done.

    The world is moving on, or has moved on.

    Its about time someone looked through the smoke screen. ICANN is a farce. I hope its broken up. What the ICANN BoD has done is a crime!

    ICANN is a Farce, but a stable and secure Farce.

    The .COM vending machine will continue to collect
    coins and some of those will make their way to the
    ICANN Staff and the Groupies that attend the
    ICANN meetings.

    What does the EU and ITU hope accomplish? ICANN is not accountable to anybody, except perhaps the United States government. Any EU or ITU study or advice is irrelevant and futile.

    The EU and ITU looking into ICANN activities is like a small aviation school in Canada launching a full scale investigation of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.

    All clueless people and LUSERs are directed to ICANN.

    The EU and ITU are LUSERs, therefore, they are
    directed to ICANN. It is a good place to waste
    their time.

    please consider taking theses issues to a more "private" forum where we can talk frankly without concerns of our words "coming back to haunt us".

    Look at things in $250,000 Increments
    by Anonymous on Saturday December 15 2001, @09:07PM (#4077)

    Take a bunch of quarters and lay them on a table.

    Imagine that each quarter is $250,000.

    Now, start handing those quarters out to all of the
    people that need to be made happy for ICANN to
    have consensus.

    Stuart Lynn gets one quarter for the year.
    Karl Bildt and Esther Dyson each get a quarter for the year.
    Joe Sims gets a quarter each month.
    Mike Roberts gets a quarter for the year.
    The ICANN Staff gets their quarter for the year.

    How many quarters went to Berkman ?
    How many quarters went to WIPO ?
    How many quarters went to the ITU ?

    Where did all of the quarters come from ?
    Domain registrations

    Follow the money, a few people are really happy.
