Re: [ga] *IF* ICANN fails what about UN?
Kent and all,
Unfortunately you are painting "Scholars" with too broad a brush
and there by committing the logical fallacy of "Glittering Generalities"
here Kent. Many Scholars, do, *Do things*, and the academe
of sciences clearly indicates, as well as those many that have
won the Nobel prize in different endeavors of categories. Many
still yet also are actively engaged in practical endeavors both inside
and outside of their affiliated universities. So to brand them as
particularly "Pernicious" is incorrect in the broad sense.
Nice try though!
