I want to second Statton’s comment here. Having duly listened in on all the
calls and read (most) of the emails so far, I am nowhere near a “black and
white” view to be put on a poll. Additionaly, the “signal/noise” ratio of the
list has made things even harder at times.
Maybe we could devote most of Monday’s call to allow for some discussions on
the proposals themselves? Less process more substance!

I will finally chime in here and support Jeff’s comment that it is a little
early to ask for our views on each of the proposals. I do like the idea of the
poll but I, personally, need a little more time to analyze the details. Some
of the proposals were just introduced this week, after all.
I have been mostly a “lurker” with respect to the e-mail exchanges on the list
but I have not been doing so with my hands “folded.” I regularly take notes on
the points being raised by active members of the group and try to map out where
consensus might be found given the various viewpoints. Some of the discussions
have struck me as being too theoretical but also practical suggestions and
proposals have been introduced and I am trying to focus on them and really try
to get a feel on how this should play out. Waiting another week for the poll
would be helpful to me.

Although I appreciate the notion of taking polls, I just have the feeling that
it is WAY too early to ask the questions that you have on Poll #1. Very few of
us understand the implications of each of the proposals enough to be able to
comment on whether we support or oppose a particular proposal much less whether
we can fill in the comment sections on any revisions that we would propose to
that particular proposal. I thought we were going to form sub-teams to look at
the proposals to discuss the pros and cons of each of the proposals in order to
potentially come up with some sort of hybrid or consensus driven proposal (if
In addition, there is nothing in the survey that asks the responder to declare
its interests (namely, (a) to check all that apply….gTLD Registry, gTLD
Registrar, New TLD Applicant, New TLD back-end Registry Services Provider,
etc., and (b) are you in favor of integration or separation….). I just think
that coming out of this survey saying x number of people support this proposal
without the essential context is going to be misleading especially with this
group being so stacked with New TLD applicants, registries, registry services
providers and registrars).
I would strongly ask that we withdraw this survey for this week in favor of
proceeding as initially proposed.
