    ICANN are attempting to do a Public-Relations exercise whereby they "tweak" their organisation to pacify the US Government and less-vocal criticisers of their corporation

    ICANN must not be allowed to get away with it

    "The original concept of a public 'at-large' membership that would elect board members has been replaced with [a] cynical, top-down, staff-board-managed PR exercise that will ironically be used by the board to pack key committees ... with cronies"

    M. Stuart Lynn says:
    The vote was 18 to zero by the board; there wasn't any controversy.
    Bret Fausett is uncritical of the reform, and likes the WLS, the Names Council, and the $.25 non-tax. If one disagrees, one is a troll. GA Chair Thomas Roessler calls Jamie Love's perspective unique. And Roessler and Fausett's worldviews are the only ones pointed to as external links for remote participation. All very neat and tidy, one big happy family.

    I for one don't buy it, and have even found a silver lining. When the dysfunctionality continues unabated, who have they got left to scapegoat? -g

    By the way, Jamie, you should really talk to the ITU before suggesting that ICANN should be moved there....Bob Shaw didn't seem to keen on the idea.
