Re: Legal Question - Re: [wg-review] Concerns
I appreciate your responding to my comments, whereas, my comments are intended
to be productive and do good here.
Taking the DoC/ICANN matter directly to the US Court of Appeals is obviously
more sophisticated than you understand for you to make a claim that I indicate
a lack of understanding of the role of an appeals courts.
In a previous email you indicated that one of your frustrations is creating a
work plan, posting it for comment and having it ignored by the work group and
ICANN. This is the very same point I have been raising! This is obviously
the only way ICANN operates.
I also listened to the teleconference yesterday and it appeared to me that any
plan or agenda that did not fit into ICANN's preconceived agenda, was wholly
ignored and shifted to the Public Comment basket.
Without any real support or work group representation, it appeared to me that
only agendas submitted by ICANN representatives themselves were pushed
forward. No other ideas or comments were acknowledged by the ICANN
Have matters I submit to the work group been put on any agenda or considered?
None that I am aware of. I don't think ICANN or its work group wants to deal
with any real problems. It appears that ICANN only wants to push forward with
its own preconceived agenda.
As for my credibility, I have no problem stating these matters as they appear
