You and Michael Froomkin are discovering what myself and many of
those who have been dealing with this for longer than you have came
to realize long ago, that there is no place for objections or
dissent in ICANN. You are only welcome in the DNSO if you agree with
the ISOC/CORE agenda. If you oppose it openly and forcefully, you
will be ostracized and excluded, as we have been. But continue
calling for fair play. It's the only way to learn.
