conĚsenĚsus (kn-snss) n.
1, An opinion or position reached by a group as a whole: "Among political
women... there is a clear consensus about the problems women candidates have
traditionally faced" (Wendy Kaminer).
2, General agreement or accord: government by consensus.
While it is open to debate what the exact level is 'required' it is norm
(IMHO) that at least 2/3 support would be required for consensus.
The word has not defined just as we do not define other words that are in
The proposed motion while having wide debate on the general issue of ICANN
.biz vs non ICANN .biz reach nothing like 'wide support' to censure ICANN on
.biz in the manner outlined.
Perhaps a motion worded differently would reach greater support, such as:
That the DNSO formally issue a statement of concern against the ICANN
board for the process in the granting of the new gTLD's (including but not
limited to .biz) and that process of its inclusion in the USG root be
reviewed by a taskforce.
Now debating this and then calling for a vote might well be more productive.
