Re: [ga] nominations
Joe and everybody else,
Thanks for the insight. I tend to agree when it comes to
Robert Shaw. I have been following his activities form
time to time for some time now. That whole ITU crowd
is a real buckett of slim if you ask me.

It's paranoia, a sad reflection on the international civil service. I'll
be honest, I was shicked a member of an ICANN committee would slander and
libel us. The bottom line in civil service survival is to say nothing,
and when one has to talk what one say should have as little meaning as
Mr. Shaw missed that class, and now we have been permanently labeled
spies. An unfortunate situation at best.
