Re: [ga] Icannatlarge.com - please give it a chance!
Alex and all assembly members, stakeholders or interested parties,
We are giving it a chance Alex. I also agree that any such effort
should be open to any and all stakeholders/users, as do all
of our [INEGroup] members.
The big problems that have been expressed are more along the
lines of the following:
1.) A steerting committee was "Appointed" by Joop-Pinder
that does not seem to reflect the will of the thus far
ICANNATLARGE.COM membership ( i.e. these
and not elected folks in this Steering Commettee)
2.) A difirenciation of "Type" of membership has been
effected from the get go which did not meet the
predominance of the ALSC participants indicating
that only Domain Name holders are of "Special"
signifigance. This is against the MoU and the White
paper and is therefore disenfrnchising as a result.
3.) There is not Email forum for this effort only Webmail
which as many know is too easly manipulated.
