RE: [wg-review] 3. [Constituencies] Report requested by NC
Yes, we've been 'round this mulberry bush a few dozen times already. It is
that your spin on events is highly creative. What you call reality is what I
call a hornswoggle. I only need to say that Amadeu and friends started this
DNSO thingy. This was one of, at least two, efforts and it certainly wasn't
the "annointed" one, as there weren't any. I was involved in one of the

To put it very lightly, I disagree. Your denial doesn't jibe with my memory

The only connection between that DNSO.ORG and the current organization is
the domain name that Amadeu donated to the ICANN, after the smoke had
cleared. Whilst y'all were playing the disenfranchisement game, in Barcelona
and Monterrey, Some of us were working on the proposal that I linked in
earlier. Then you guys played three-card monte with the competing proposals.
The whole mess went on to Paris, Singapore and later to Berlin. Yes, all
proposals had something about contituencies. However, every proposal had a
more flexible model then the one ICANN built. I wont mention the venue where
you played switcheroony with the DNSO.ORG proposal.

Let's examine this statement; The ICANN staff built the DNSO charter that
the ICANN BoD approved, yet you maintain that the ICANN BoD had nothing to
do with it?!?!?

I won't be as charitable and state that the statement you just made
indicates how much your logic cogs have been slipping lately. You really
ought to get that looked at.
