Re: [ga] RE: [icann-delete] WLS Input - Greatest Good vs. Benefits of the Few
Don and all assembly members,
Don, your quite right. In this country, my country, TX, >;) we have
a right, and I would argue a duty, to vote. However the GA members
are not being given that opportunity on many issues, the "Delete and WLS"
issues or most recent interest. This is why I and I believe Patrick
put out two polls for the DNSO GA members to demonstrate their
VOTE. I believe that given an opportunity without fear of some
sort of retribution, GA members will vote. I believe that we
NEED a "Delete WG" in order to come up with a GA generated
and determined Position on the Delete issue. Currently with the
recent comments of our new Chair, Thomas Rossler, it doesn't
seem that we will be given the RIGHT to vote on this and perhaps
other issues that need addressing for instance the .ORG v5.4
final report from the .ORG TF, unless it happens to be a issue
that Thomas, our newly elected chair supports....
