Nick and all,
As Wendy has already said, bares repeating. This is
and remains a farce. As a NCUC member I was not consulted,
nor do I know of any NCUC member that was or is willing
to confirm same. None of our INEGroup members support
this nonsense either. Nor is there any independent
confirmation from the BC or any other constituency that
is on record. Hence frankly Wendy's remarks ring even
louder and much more accurate.
Frankly as time goes along, the whole of the ALAC and
ALS'es as Danny has more than once indicated, looks like
another farce hoist upon ICANN and especially users
as if it represents any significant number of users
what so ever, not to mention practices censorship.
And to make it even worse, some of the ALAC staff,
and chairs are propagating spam, malware, spyware,
and child pornography due to open mis configured DNS's
for gods sake! Sheesh!

>The Working Group also produced a draft statement for transmission to the

>The ALAC also discussed the progress on this issue at its meeting earlier
