    Excuse me, but when did you develop psychic powers? How do you know that is what Karl really wants to do? Unless you can prove this, it's just a guess on your part. A guess that I, and many others, do not agree with.

    Karl appears to know, better than most, what his duties to ICANN are.

    Under California law Karl has the absolute right to inspect all documents of the Corporation. It doesn't say, absolute, except you have to first sign this document written by the staff, (the staff who are his employees, no less). If, and Karl has never claimed that he wants to tell the world, he did that and harmed the Corporation he would be legally liable. He knows that, he's a California lawyer, he's on record as saying that he is aware of his fiduciary duty as a Director. So this worry that he would improperly release documents is just a worry, and a red herring. It is alleging a potential future harm without any evidence, even if there were such evidence it would have no legal power to overrule existing California law. -g

    ICANN uses procedures like a blind drunk leans on a lamppost -- more for support than illumination.
    Anybody who does not understand why ICANN "procedures" are simply cameoflage for their actions, has not been watching ICANN carefully...

    A lot of readers to this site are just plain conspiracy theorists who think that just because ICANN doesn't want to hold every single communication about the internet in public that they are doing something to screw them over. ICANN doesn't have to do that, corporations are required to do so. Even in this day & age when we are having issues over corporate greed and confusion, I just don't think that is what we have at ICANN. A lot of people probably wish that is what is going on, but it isn't.

    The obligation in ICANN's conflicts of interest policy to turn materials over to the conflicts committee existed before ICANN created the "procedures" restricting access.

    In other words, even if there were validity in the argument that the access procedures apply, there is no possibility that those procedures applied during that period before they were written and during which the required disclosure statements were not being provided to the conflicts committee as was required by ICANN own then-existing and still existing written conflicts of interest policy.
