What complete and utter nonsense! The alt.roots are the consensus.

The very first alt.root was used as the test bed for Draft Postel. You 
can't kill off something that has a right to be there - and numerous TLDs 
still around have Jon Postel/IANA's permission to be in an alt.root. IANA 
even provided wording for registries in an alt.root to use as a waiver of 
legal liability.

Until ICANN recognizes and addresses these things the alt.roots are going 
to continue to route around ICANN because they have the right to be there, 
and ICANN does not have the right to displace them.

Of course, you weren't privy to what really went on in the IANA conference 
room, so any rebuttal you can think of is going to be more lies and 
revisionist FUD. My best advise to you, Kent, is to shut up and go away.

I hope you're taking good notes, because history will be reported differently.
