Re: [registrars] Is this going to far or what??

Len and I have had some discussions on this in the past.

Although there has been limited feedback from the rest of the constituency
concerning a public information campaign, we (TUCOWS) are fully prepared to
take part in the process. I believe that the big question is what level of
activism does ICANN and the DNSO deem appropriate for our constituency.
Obviously there will need to be a high level of cooperation and coordination
between the various groups to ensure that our efforts are not working at
cross purposes.

Does anyone have any idea what our next step should be to organize this?
