I make the same pledge.  You understood that when you nomnated me.

Agreed.  Danny's employment is not relevant as long as it's known.

My view is that ICANN's charter is not to "fracture the internet".

As I've said before, my personal opinions are participatory and inclusive.

On the Board of auDA      .au ccTLD, AUNIC registry
My own business              business
Sell domain names             registration service provider
Personal holder                  individual
On Board of TLDA            alternate TLDs
Member "at large"              ICANN supporter
Member GA                        consultative

The only real omission is the IP constituency.  I support UDRP but think it most
properly applies to use of the domain name in a manner which diminishes the
trade or service mark.

I also believe in transparency and openness in an election process.  The
electors are then in the best position to decide for themselves.  I will respect
their judgement and thank them for partipating..

I have made my position plain and do not intend to comment further.

Best regards
Patrick Corliss
