Re: [bc-gnso] Has Philip Sheppard violated the BC charter?
Philip??what up with this? seems like you're running a bit ahead of our position here. 'seems to me that George is right, you have 10% of the membership supporting a different view. wouldn't that call for a vote? you want to comment?
i guess another question is in order -- why such haste? we have a couple weeks before the comment period is over -- plenty of time to poll the group, no?

Hi folks, I am literally shocked to see that Philip has submitted a statement on behalf of the BC on the IRT, see: http://forum.icann.org/lists/irt-final-report/msg00087.html saying: "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: http://www.bizconst.org/charter.htm "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 constituency.
