Re: [ga] WLS, GA, ALSO and ICANN

Yes, Jefsey.  I think you've got it wrong.

The WLS proposal, and the various press releases by VeriSign and Snap
which indicated that it was essentially a "done deal," flew in the
face of ICANN's very existence, IMO.

It was a controversial and topical matter of discussion and debate on
this list, and others, and it cut across most all boundaries --
including those of the Registrants, Registrars and other Stakeholders.

For a variety of reasons, there was a general concern which was
vocalized on this, and other, lists by many. Although you may not have
a particular interest in the subject matter, it was, never-the-less,
important to many other participants. Isn't it the purpose of this
list to discuss and debate issues which the participants find
important and topical? If so, then I think you are reading more into
it (i.e. the items enumerated in your post with respect to the GA
list) than actually and realistically exist.
