Dear All:

We're all adults.  There are processes in place to object if a party/parties 
feel as if there has been abuse of power/position.  Silly discussions like this 
are why the OSC's procedures are so arcane and complicated.  Let's all grow up 
and realize that volunteers are rare, good volunteers rarer still and good 
leaders the rarest of all.  Jeff Neuman is all three rolled into one and we as 
a community should embrace that and thank him for being willing to continue.

Subject: [gnso-ppsc] question of conflict of interest


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.
