[ga] Rehibilitation of the DNSO GA form it's Ill repute status

All Assembly Members,

  As you know the past few months have been tumultuous to say
the least.  There has been several instances of fraudulent behavior
and fraudulent action regarding several instances.  Some of these
have been duly recorded in the archives of this list as well as with
the appropriate government authorities.

  It is time now to address how as assembly members we together
can restores some assemblance of honesty integrity and creditability
in the DNSO, so as to make it a viable entity or support organization
for ICANN and the stakeholder community to partake and participate
in and equitable and fair upstanding manner.

  Several very worth while previous participants have left the DNSO
in disgust or became disillusioned due to the actions of a few assembly
members in positions of questionable validity.  Some of these valuable
and worthy ex-participants left due to "Rules" that were not mandated
in a honest way, and therefore impose upon the assembly members
unjustly and lacking creditability as such.  Others have been judged
without due process or consideration of any legal or honest way so
as to be temporarily selectively censored.  I was one of those, others
are still in a state of improperly and unduly selectively censored
still, but yet interested in participating and being members.

  There has been and still remains a decision as to how, and what
DNSO GA list rules need or should be implemented.  There is little
time in which to do this before the Cairo meeting.  But it still can
be accomplished if all of us work together in good faith and in the
sprit of inclusiveness.  So I propose that the following steps be taken
in the following order:

1.) Establish and determine what method of voting in order to make
     decisions on resolutions that effect this body (Assembly Members)
     by the assembly members themselves.  Existing facilities or methods

     have already been suggested by Assembly members and ex-members
     that should be a good starting point.

2.) That for the time being any rules that are currently being imposed
      be discarded or put "On hold" until permanent rules can be
      by the Assembly members together through a resolution process.
      Any existing member may submit resolutions for this purpose.
      Amendments to those resolutions may also be submitted as well
      by any member.

3.) All ex-members or members under current questionably valid
      imposed penalties be temporarily lifted so that they may
     openly and freely as "Interested" parties.

4.) A request from the DNSO list admin from the members resolution
      be addressed under the old rules (Pre Aug.'99) for all members
      whom have left to rejoin under no deress or previous condition
      of servitude so as to mend the wounds that have been grievously,
      and with obvious malice, inflicted upon them and this Assembly.

5.) Develop a method or means of identification that does not infringe
     upon a persons personal privacy in any manor and do so in a
     secure fashion providing for and "Opt-Out" provision should that
     individual choose to utilize no allowing any of that information to

     be decimated without his/her expressed written permission.
     (Several methods have already been suggested here).

6.) Hold and election once steps 1 thru 5 have been completed or are
     nearing completion.  # 5 must be complete.  This election should
     also include any and all stakeholders that choose to participate
     to elect a Chair and Co-Chair.  Duties and responsibilities of
     these two positions must also be clearly delineated as well as part

     of this election.

7.)  Hold a runoff election on current crop of resolutions submitted
where by
      each resolution recieves a 2/3 majority mandate by the Assembly
      under the to be established election rules and identification
      established.  This step should be repeated weakly so as to
      resolutions and amendments have satisfied the 2/3 majority of the
      assembly members.

In closing:

  This should get this Assembly started down the right path to
and restoration of creditability.

  Constructive comments anyone?
