Whereas the petition to establish the CyberSafety Constituency does not
suggest a particular agenda for such a NCSG, it does suggest the group
would concern itself with Global Internet content. Such a concern would
inevitably involve ICANN in national, regional, and local political
debates regarding content. This involvement would dilute ICANN's
resources and reduce it's focus on international areas of cooperation.
Additionally, given the highly charged political atmosphere surround
online content regulation, such a constituency would have the effect of
politicizing ICANN, and thus reducing its overall effectiveness.

Thank You
