I am a member of the AIP. Only yesterday I received an email from the AIP
announcing that ICANN existed, and asking members a few questions.
If the AIP draft was based on member comments, boy are you guys quick. I
know it's a pain actually listening to everyone, giving them time to
consider things, etc., but that's what a democracy is.
As a member of the AIP, I can't support an application by the AIP when I was
never given a chance to review what is being presented in my name.
This flawed procedure illustrates why it's a bad idea to have an "executive"
Names Council. There is no incentive to even consult with membership.
