    The footprints of Crispy Crock

    Or for any standard of ethics. Having watched ICANN for some time there is another troubling aspect to this. I've noticed in the past that when Crispy Crock, ICANN's two-headed pit bull, AKA Kent Crispin and Dave Crocker, get involved in an issue, EGs: Crispy, Crock, there's something going on behind the scenes, some hidden agenda which may eventually become clear. It has now become abundantly clear what was going on in this case. -g

    I think it gets worse than that, fnord.

    Crock has formed a company and Crisp is on the staff. Crisp is also working for ICANN. Crock's company says that they're operating in "stealth mode," but that they've received funding.

    I smell bad fish here, too.

    And if you're new to ICANNWatching, Kent Crispin works for ICANN, Dave Crocker works for NeuLevel. Of course like ICANN, they're ostensibly primarily involved in technical matters, though, like ICANN, they seem to spend most of their time involved in policy matters. And all parties seem to spend most of their time ensuring that the certain vested interests receive the bulk of any business over which ICANN has control. You could always ask your government representatives at what point anti-trust authorities will become involved. -g

    More of the Crispy Crock two step

    ICANN's pit bull twins are getting increasingly desperate about Blokzijlgate. Milton Mueller is now having to defend himself against allegations from both Crock and Crispy.

    Even if their allegations are true, and there is zero evidence that they are, it does nothing to explain or excuse the behavior of the Blokzijl's. This is classic Crispy Crock for those new to the game. They inject themselves into a discussion (and this is Crispin, an ICANN employee, and Crocker, who sometimes works for NeuLevel, on the non-commercial constituency email list, no less) and use disinformation tactics to attempt to shift or blur the focus. ICANN really should go down to the pet store for some new watch/guard-dogs. These two grizzled ones were useful because they're rabid, but they're becoming toothless. -g
