This is not accurate: I have stated that _public_ distrust in ICANN 
and its board has reached a climax, and I have drawn this conclusion 
 from a publication by a number of individuals which generally enjoy 
a high reputation, and from other observations.  I have, however, 
_not_ made a statement on what "the membership" of the GA believes.

I do agree on the clear message part, but I do not at this point of 
time agree that a (declaratory) "vote of no confidence" is the best 
way to proceed.  I hope that we can find more constructive ways of 
expressing ourselves.
