This is totally false. Every organization that has sent a message of
adherence to the ICIIU has been checked out, and those with any
commercial use of their website, any at all, have been turned down.
That includes a full half of the organizations that sent requests
for adherence. Only those which are genuinely non-commercial were
accepted, and only these are listed.
I could have done what ISOC is doing, and put down every single
organization available, in order to stack the deck in favor of the
ICIIU. But I won't stoop to such dishonesty, and am not interested
in winning this contest if it means compromising the principles on
which the ICIIU was founded. As I said, no support is or will be
accepted by the ICIIU from any organization that is seen to be using
the Internet for commercial purposes.
