    F-you. I am hardly "beneath contempt" for pointing out that Karl missed a huge event. Remember, that event was only a few days duration. If he was too sick, he should have made sure he was heard loudly, in his absence.

    He should have sent the ViceKarl.

    He was there by phone but with Vint's hearing problem, he was forced to instead "write" his questions and could not debate issues very well. Anyone who attended either in person or remotely would have been aware of this.

    As for his reason for not being there, my understanding was that he had broken a limb shortly before the meeting.

    There is no one who could sit in that seat and have any more effect on the board than Karl has had. He is outspoken - more so than the other at-large directors. All it gets him is "take it offline" or some other cryptic, derisive remark from the Chair.

    Karl is also the only board member who does post a "diary" for all his constituents to see what actally goes on behind the scenes.

    Heaven help any of us who have responsibilities and happen to fall ill or break something just prior to an important event. Even then, think how you would feel about it if you made every attempt to attend via phone only to be cut off due to someone else's impairment. Perhaps Karl should have been heard and Vint should have had to read a transcript of karl's remarks or had someone verbally transcribe for him.

    If there is anything unjust about this, it is that Karl is disparaged when he is trying to do more for all of us than anyone else in ICANN.
