[wg-b] Formal Ballot
The following is the PROPOSED formal ballot which I contemplate sending out
over the weekend. Any constructive comments please forward them to me and I
will try to incorporate them into the ballot.
DO NOT REPLY TO THIS TEST BALLOT AT THIS TIME. JUST PROVIDE YOUR COMMENTS
DIRECTLY TO ME.

Once the voting process has begun, the votebot will send you three ballots.
You only need to reply once. After voting, the votebot will e-mail you your
results to safeguard against any errors. When you receive subsequent ballots
after casting the first one it is not necessary for you to submit it again.
Once is enough. However, in the unlikely event that you change your mind you
can resubmit your ballot "in its entirety" (provide a response to each
question) and it will override your earlier vote.
REMINDER: Although I have denied no one from participating in this group,
"repeated" failure to exercise your right to vote, even an abstention is
acceptable, "may" result in your removal from the list in the future.
Hopefully, this will be a non-issue.
For any registration entities participating on this list I encourage them to
review the latest cybersquatting legislation making its way through the US
House of Representatives. It appears likely that a modified version of the
House and Senate bills will become law. This is important for registration
entities (registrars & registries) because it includes a safe harbor
provision for these entities in connection with potential liability.
Any Questions do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or phone (561)
