    The real embarrasment is that ICANN gets away with this. The NTIA seems to be buying Stuart Lynn's rhetoric hook, line and sinker.

    Expect ICANN to claim that it was an error, and expect ICANN to be reformed to the tune of no representation and more dictatorial control. Expect the elected board members to be shown the door, while boardsquatters remain. Expect Mr. Auerbach's lawsuit to be rendered irrelevant as his term expires. And expect ICANN to grant emergency benefits to the existing registries as a result of the unfortunate and unforseen problems they've encountered. The problems aren't their fault, of course.

    With the demise of Realnames, and the upcoming demise of new.net, there's no competition for ICANN, and they know it.

    It's over. ICANN wins.

    Esther Dyson should be banned from any ICANN activities and/or working groups, period.

    She's a lying hosebag. She lied to Congress.

    Hans Kraaijenbrink, Mike Roberts, Esther Dyson, and the feeble Vint Cerf, all made a mockery of ICANN.

    Who picked these bozos to run ICANN?

    I remember November 2000, Esther Dyson stomping on speeches by TLD applicants, because those speeches exceeded 3 minutes duration. What a c-nt!

    Remember part of Esther Dyson's signature on at least one comment from one forum: "Always make new mistakes!" http://forum.icann.org/reform-comments/general/msg00042.html

    Well, she's got that covered.

    The rest of her motto should read: "And after you make new mistakes, just leave the mess for someone else to clean up."

    She's a joke. A sad joke.

    ICANN embarrassed? Never!

    ICANN's acts of the past, present, and future might make a brass monkey blush. But remember who we are talking about here - ICANN.

    "particularly sudden" ??

    I couldn't find the referenced URL in the Google cache when I looked yesterday. If ICANN had moved the link in response to the IW piece, it almost surely would have still been in the cache. -- Bret
