Normally I would not use my 3rd and final post of the day so early
into the day (i.e. before 2 am), but the following just could not go

Anyone can read Mike R's own Statement of Interest:


which states:

"Therefore I also advise those clients about ICANN, and advocate at
ICANN some of their views that ICANN policies should change and/or be
adopted to mitigate these problems."

Please tell the members of this constituency what is the difference,
if any, in your mind between "lobbying" and "adovating at ICANN some
of *THEIR* views (paying clients) that ICANN policies should change"?
Isn't that the very *definition* of lobbying?

Feel free to answer that in your next post, knowing that I won't be
replying until 12:01 am on Thursday, if I need to respond at all,
given that the above is so clear and speaks for itself. :)

Have a nice day everyone!
