Since this list is for root issues, and Leah, I'm sure, was referring to
root users, which ROOT users has ICANN conferred with? ORSC? PacROOT?
NARSC? TINC? TLDA?

How can you continue to make such flippant, irresponsible statements? What
do you know about the TLDA? You have not been a part of any discussions on
the TLDA lists.
The point you insist on missing is that there ARE legitimate root systems in
the world aside from ICANN's. Fortunately, they do not need, nor do they
seek, your personal stamp of approval. Also fortunately, there are people
in and around ICANN who understand that these root systems are worthy of
Kent, that begs the question, are you here to discuss these issues seriously
or to be a naysayer to anyone who does not share your enlightened view?
