[bc-gnso] Three Months and Counting...

Today marks the three month anniversary of the letter sent by the BC to ICANN 
raising five questions regarding the document
 "UDRP Providers and Uniformity of Process - Status Report" issued without 
advance notice by ICANN on July 19th , the day after the Durban meeting 
concluded -- 

A quarter of a year has passed and the BC has to date received no response to 
its inquiry. This is inconsistent with professed standards of accountability 
and transparency.

At a time when ICANN is trying to rally the community to defend the 
multistakeholder model it is sad that it continues to feel free to ignore 
important stakeholder constituencies whenever they raise inconvenient 
questions. If ICANN expects enthusiastic support of the MSM it has to walk the 
walk, not just talk the talk.  Business sector backing of ICANN is critical to 
its future viability.

I have deliberately placed this message on the public BC list so that it is 
available to ICANN executives and staff.

Happy holidays.
