Avri, et al.

I totally disagree with this message and its implied meaning.  Jeff is a 
dedicated volunteer and has the highest ethics I know of.  I totally stand 
behind him.  What conflict is here?  Is there a conflict of interest because he 
believes the current structure is fine and he is willing to volunteer his 
valuable time.  I know you are disappointed with the outcome of yesterday's 
GNSO Council meeting, but this is the wrong issue for you to be "beating your 
drum about."

As I have done before in other circumstances, I question the legitimacy of 
having a chair for the PPSC  or the PDP WT who has ascended to the GNSO council 
and is one of its vice-chairs    I believe that the influence a council member, 
who is in the position of approving or disapproving the work of PPSC and its 
WTs is not consistent with also being a Chair of either the PPSC or of a WT.

This is a personal question at this point, but I will be forwarding this note 
to the NCSG  to seek their advice on the issue.
