Re: [ga] VeriSign Wins Approval to Keep Control of Dot-Com

Hi Andy and all:

Yes...I also have the same feeling than you.  I remember Joe Simms
ignoring my question ("Does Proposal of New Agreement is open to changes?) and
wanting to leave the podium but he didn't succeed because I requested him
to answer me such question again.  And then it was when he said that the
"Proposal of New Agreement is not open to changes".

Though this is something bitter that I won't forget, also I am conscient
that DNSO have to move forward first identifying the issues of the New
Agreement that is a matter of the DNSO from right now! Not wait until
deadlines in order to begin to work things in the last minute, neither
wait until ICANN request for comments in time when few things can be done.

Best Regards
