    Chris, who uses the non de plume "NameCritic" is a longtime participant in the ICANN process. We have all benefited from the commentary that he has provided to the Review Working Group, to the General Assembly discussion list, to the ga-roots discussion list, to the icannatlarge.com list, to the UDRP Task Force list and to the ALSC Forum.

    I use the word "all" loosely, as it is quite apparent that M.Stuart Lynn rarely bothers to read the contributions put forth by members of the general public -- otherwise he would readily have known that Chris is not merely an "anonymous source", but rather a valued contributor that has spent years participating within the DNSO.

    A suggestion to ICANN Management: rather than hiring a Manager of Public Participation, why not try actually doing your jobs? That would mean reading and assessing the input provided by the community on all of the different mailing lists instead of just showing up clueless at Board meetings every few months. You might even try interacting with those you ostensibly serve, as does Director Auerbach who regularly participates on most of these lists.

    You have already been chastised by the Department of Commerce: "the Department is very much aware of the concerns expressed by individual Internet stakeholders that ICANN is not always responsive to inquiries regarding DNS management issues."

    Why not initiate some reform at the Board level? You can start by reading the mailing lists and getting to know the longtime participants on those lists... you might even learn something.

    Best wishes,
    Danny Younger
