More on .xxx in Bret's subsequent podcast [lextext.com], in which he reports the following "rumors" running around the hall:|
- Vint acted unilaterally, surprising some fellow Board members
- The EU threatened to pull out of GAC unless .xxx was taken off the table
- The US was running around trying to get other governments to oppose .xxx to take the heat off the US
Whatever the truth, even Bret, usually an ICANN supporter, is miffed with the lack of transparency at ICANN regarding .com and .xxx -- and ICANN's failure to follow its own rules.
Longtime readers will of course say, "what else is new?"
