Subject: ICANN and the IOC - lifestyles of the rich and famous and systemic corruption

Message:
 

 
Your references to ICANN board meetings in Montevideo, remind me of the systemic corruption which was allowed to flourish in the International Olympic Committee (IOC)under the recently retired President - who like to be addressed as Your Excellency.

There seem to be parallels between the corrupt behaviour of some members of the IOC under the former president and that which we are witnessing in ICANN at the moment.

The former IOC behaved as though it was above the laws which govern the rest of us, and set about establishing a culture more focused on what the Olympic movement could do for them than what they could do for the Olympic movement.

They forgot the enormous responsibilities they assumed when they accepted the enormous privilege of being IOC members.

Like the corruption of the IOC - ICANN's too will be exposed - but heaven help the .info Landrushers.
