Re: [ga] Time to regulate the Re-Sellers


Here is where I must respectfully disagree.  We want the same outcome but we
have differing views on how to reach it.  We both agree that at this time ICANN
is making public policy decisions. We both agree that in its' current makeup it
should not be doing so.  What to do about it is where we diverge.

Agreed.  But now it may not just walk away from that box.  They are the ones who
opened it.  When the problems are your fault you have an obligation to try and
fix them.

Big problem here.  What bodies were created for that purpose.  Clearly they must
be international in scope and be open and transparent and bottom up.  Please
point me to those bodies.

Creep yes, but you can only creep into a void.

Agreed, no new jobs.  But abandoning what it has already so greatly effected
would be irresponsible.
The only choices are repair or replace. (or maybe a little of both)
