  As this report did not address a long standing problem 
that has plagued ICANN and it's various organs, that of 
censorship.  Recently, in fact even yesterday some members
of the NARLO and the ALAC global mailing list have sought
to bully others not to make comments, remarks, or present
observations that are directly related to the recognized
improvements to the GNSO.  Eliminating Censorship is
a significant one.  

  Those of us whom have long been engaged in ICANN related 
issues have long realized that Selective Censorship on
WG lists, general lists, and the like under ICANN's management
has been a problem that has threatened many for years, and
stymied input accordingly.  This is definitely wrong and
wrong headed as has I have stated in representation of
our INEGroup members which was formed in 1998 and 
recognized by DOC/NTIA accordingly. 

  Censorship in any of it's ugly forms is wrong!
Let good men and women of good conscience seek to
eliminate such plagues and injustice practices...
