[ga] The election of the DNSO representatives in the ICANN board...

Dear Michael and all fellows...

To all your questions, I would like to say "yes you are right".
In many times you are right.
And yes, I am a believer.
I believe that WE (you, me, all) must "correct" the things that are bad done,
and we must continue looking for a ICANN that is right, lawfull in mind and
There has been an election process.
The power that the first 3 ICANN board directors will have is BIG.  Really Big.
If something has been done against the ICANN law, against the common sense,
we must discuss it, and we must CORRECT it.
ICANN process is not a perfect process, is the process that you, Michael, I, and all
the internet comunity is building day by day.
For sure that ALL the elected members (Alejandro, Amadeu, John) will not hesitate
to review the process and tell us if there is something that has been wrong.  They
are the FIRST ONES to be called to check if there is something wrong.
Second, the NC council members must tell us (to the General Assambly) if there has
been something wrong...
And WE, all together, the NC, the elected members, the GA, must correct what it has
been wrong.  It is our duty.
Yes, Michael.  I am a believer.  You are one too, arent you ?

Have a nice evening,
