Re: [ga] gTLD Constituency

Nope. That's not it at all. Simply that this constituency needs to be comprised
of all gTLD registries, both applicant, accepted, and operational (or any
combination of the three). You twisted my words.

Sometimes, perhaps. Not in this case. You're trying to divert the issue.
After 6 years of watching you do it, it's not so easy anymore. Your
viewpoint over the past few years is irrelevant to me. Your current
employer, NeuStar, biases you. My current employer, Image Online
Design, biases me. You try to deny it, or call it into question. I embrace
it for what it is.

So stop trying to divert the issue, and make a substantive retort, rather
than analogies that don't quite track, or complaints about the realities
of the situation.

Again, you're diverting the issue. This analogy has nothing to do with the
case at hand. Let's have a good reason why applicants who have paid
the fee, passed the criteria, and are, as ICANN readily proclaims,
pending acceptance can't be part of this constituency and have a voice
on the names council. 

Arguing with you is like trying to teach a pig to sing. It's pointless, and
annoys the pig. I've made my point, you've brought up no substantive
arguments against it, so I shall move on. Say good night, Dave.
