I apologize if I've offended anyone here. Hope is not supposed to be a
blunt instrument, and I have no intention of using it to do damage. What
can I say? The odds are overwhelmingly against common sense prevailing
within ICANN. The DNSO is a dysfunctional joke that the ICANN board
continue to ignore. The GA and working groups are continually ignored by
the NC. The people (the common folk) are rallying around the alternative
roots as their source of hope as they are totally disillusioned by ICANN.
This mailing list is one acknowledgement that, at least in the GA, there
are folk prepared to recognize the alt.roots and do something (attempt to
control?). Whether this is positive or not, or extends to the NC or the
ICANN board is yet to be seen.
When enough people agree with what needs to be done it's called consensus.
Something can be done, but sometimes it takes a while for the whole
community to acknowledge what is real consensus and what has been
manufactured in secret by a committee.
