Mr. Froomkin-

Your reply to Mr. Sola was admirably reasoned and phrased. But
aren't you, by debating with him, promoting a fiction of which only
he is the beneficiary: that he, Mr. Sola, is somehow an official of
ICANN or its DNSO? Mr. Sola has not been designated the leader of
the DNSO or its Names Council by any due or democratic process. How
could he have been, when there have been no, or a minority, of duly
elected Names Council members from the DNSO's constituencies to
elect him? 

Mr. Sola has assumed a position of power in the Names Council by
dint of an aggressive character and an indifference towards
democratic process. He enjoys no expressed confidence by the
Internet stakeholder community, but only the transitory and
ill-gotten fruits of his mischief. By debating governance issues
with him, aren't you tacitly appproving his illicit actions? Is that
a wise thing to do?
