I am literally shocked to see that Philip has submitted a statement on
behalf of the BC on the IRT, see:
"The BC recognizes the work and efforts of all those who participated
in the IRT. The BC believes that this report is a productive step
forward in addressing several issues with respect to new gTLDs."
in particular given that 5 BC members (more than 10%) did not support
that statement, and indeed supported my alternate proposal. Section
7.4 of our charter is explicit:
"Where the discussion mechanism indicates a split in the Constituency
of more than 10% of the number of paid-up members, there will then be
a vote (typically by e-mail) on the position."
There has been no such vote.
Philip needs to explain why he should not be disciplined under 3.6 of
our charter, for making such a statement on behalf of the
