They know it is so that ICANN can pretend they are listening to users.

It is purely a tool for show - as can be seen from ICANN response.

People coming here know that their voice is not heard by ICANN.

A few have show their frustration by squabbling amongst themselves - hence the long threads of name-calling.

But - though ICANN do not listen - others do. I have had visits from government, UN, lawyers and Afilias - coming from here.

I have a methodology for problem solving. Part involves looking at all available resources - e.g. a tool for them is a tool for us.

I show my frustration by mocking them with satire - trademarks SWIPO.org(TM) and Don 'Littlechick' Evans(TM).

By using this board as a tool for us - pointing out shortfalls in the system - intelligently - they cannot say they did not know.

After all they are 'supposed' to be listening to us ;-)
