[ga] Re: [IFWP] Re: ICANN Board to Nominate "At-large" Directors!!!

Ellen and all,

  I agree that the ICANN @Large seems to be a very weak process.
This is of course indicative of the ICANN board.  It has been very weak
on process, thus producing very poor substance in many instances.  The
UDRP and the "Accreditation Policy" is just two past examples.

 Nominees should come from the membership itself.  But as we [INEGroup]
predicted almost a year ago now, the ICANN board does not wish or want
this to occur for reasons of loosing a tight fisted control of things.
