    It does now list the current members. It didn't when I wrote the article. Thinking some anon troll would come up with this after it was subsequently changed, I saved the source code and also took a .jpg screengrab. I'll send them to ICANNWatch for hosting and link to them if they'll do that. The page also now asserts that it was last updated April 22, 2002, the same day the committee was last changed. That is as false as just about everything else ICANN generates.

    However, let us imagine that the link (which I linked to, you didn't, who is it who has an inability to use the web? here it is again) was accurate. According to your assertion that must logically mean that everything else I say is also wrong and that, for example, ICANN really has ratified and published its BoD meeting minutes in a timely fashion. Perhaps you could help me out and point to where they are hidden in plain site (I take it that was a pun)? -g

    To be frank, the substantial points are still just as serious, and in my opinion the likelihood is that someone at ICANN inserted the link AFTER this IcannWatch article was published.

    A judge has found in favour of Karl Auerbach. ICANN has squandered funds on a failed lawsuit.

    ICANN is in disarray, and I find it risible that this correspondent is being vilified when he has raised serious points of concern.

    I believe the correspondent.

    He hasn't got a track record of deceit, obfuscation, opaque dealings, and broken promises.
