No hysteria, no ranting, no fud.  Rather a simple and reaction of
repugnance at the lack of respect for even the most basic of democratic

The NC's procedure (which, by the way, is in utter violation to the ICANN
bylaws on other grounds) is nothing less than a removal of any
discretionary power from the GA.

Perhaps you like being reduced to a mere clerk under the glorified, but
clearly meaningless title "member of the DNSO General Assembly".  I don't.

You are deceiving yourself if you think you are involved in selecting. All
you are doing is being part of a clerical body, the GA, whose sole role in
all of this is collect names.
