In fact, even the simplest "networking" efforts were not supported 
by ICANN: Back then, I had started the icann-europe mailing list 
(which is kind of dead by now, but was quite alive back then).  I 
tried for more than half a year (and with countless e-mails) to 
convince ICANN staff to add a link to that mailing list's web site 
to one of their link pages. I wrote to Esther who was the chairman 
of the board back then, and she agreed that it would be a good idea, 
and told staff.

The person in charge of the elections back then (sorry, I forgot the 
name) even told me she was working on an FAQ on that. The last thing 
I heard (several months after the exchange of e-mails with Esther) 
was that the FAQ couldn't be put online because there was nothing on 
the Asian and African regions so far (or something like that), and 
it could only be put online in its entirety.

No such FAQ was ever put up, to the best of my knowledge.  Now, 
guess what kind of message that kind of behaviour sent.
