    ICANN will once more dismiss this as the work of "arrogant juveniles".

    Losing Patience?

    Read that letter again, then read the Blueprint for Reform, released last evening. Why isn't every issue raised by the good Congressmen addressed by the Blueprint? The issues may not be addressed the way we'd all like them to be, but it strikes me that the Congressional letter is fairly mild and was purposefully written so it would be answered by the existing process.

    Short-term renewal? How short? Three months? Six months?

    Any longer would be too long

    ICANN have had numerous opportunities to listen and change their ways of working, but they do not wish to. They like it the way it is. It suite them and their majority trademark-holding "stakeholders"

    If ICANN are allowed to continue, they will simply 'tweak' their way of operating and put token people in positions of little or no authority (just as in the so-called At-Large Directors fiasco)

    ICANN must not be left to its own devices, it must be FORCED to implement radical changes, or cease to exist

    There are some senses in this article of"what ICANN should do".

    I especially agree that "ICANN's operating procedures must be transparent to any and all interested parties. This means far more than posting decisions on a website. ICANN must establish rules, not unlike those in the Administrative Procedures Act, that provide interested parties with predictability"In other words,ICANN should be more accessible to any countries,any corporation and any individual who will be affected by its policy.

    Don't always emphasize the interest of stakeholders and interested parties!In fact,till now,ICANN has been considering their interests too much,not too little!Anyway,Internet belongs to human being rather than belongs to a few stakeholders.what ICANN should consider more is to respect the interests of all the countries connected into Internet,especially the interests of developing countries.

    ICANN should remember that internet doesn't belong to America only,not to say just belongs to several stakeholders and interested parties!
