In other words, the working groups are a farce and will be treated
in the same way that the participants at the Monterrey DNSO meetings
were treated, that is, they will be ignored, since the DNSO's agenda
is set and won't be altered for anything as unimportant as due
process or dissent. Conclusion: the dnso itself is nothing more than
a cover to legitimize the agenda of CORE/ISOC.
