    "The US Constitution was amended many times in the few years after it was signed as experience revealed things were forgotten or needed to be changed AND as we all know, to this day the President is elected not by the people"

    in case NTIA is listening, this a direct shot by an ICANN Board member of how Gore won the popular vote....these are the people that you extended for a year. Can NTIA even begin to understand American taxpayer frustration?

    ICANN is to the Internet as the Creature from Jekyll Island is to banking. What a beast.

    I ran in in an open election. I won. I beat six other well qualified candidates in an election run under ICANN's own rules.

    I am the only person on the ICANN board who obtained his/her seat by an open election in North America. I am sorry if other board members, particularly those board members who established the rules of that election, have a problem with that. But I am even more sorry that they have chosen to even further de-legitimize ICANN by eliminating those few vestiges of public accountability that ICANN once had.
