    We all know that Commerce will renew the MOU. This group is just biased, and no matter what the question, would find something bad to say about ICANN.

    Micheal,
    Perhaps you should limit your poll to one vote per person. I see that Mr.Tutton and Mr. Simms thus far have managed to vote 42 times.

    There a lot of ICANNwatchers who would rather deal with ICANN, a known entity, than rebid the contract anew. I think ICANN is making positive steps toward reform, and they should be given a chance to see those steps work. Let the contract be renewed through Sept. 03 or 04 to see if the reform elements work.

    In my opinion, the former Network Solutions and ICANN both messed up the internet. First, Network Solutions (now Verisign), is the registry, yet at the same time, a registrar, of .com domains, but this has continued, ICANN has done nothing, DoC has done nothing. Secondly, ICANN has shut out the public to its internet, the people s, not ICANN's. Why should DoC renew its contract with ICANN when ICANN's reforms haven't helped, and it has closed public forums (such as the new TLD suggestion forum).

    I think we know by now that Commerce will renew the MOU with ICANN (as if there was any doubt). Time for a new poll.
