Subject: Bringing ICANN under control - time for openness and transparency


It is necessary to apply pressure on Fred Upton and his Subcommittee for Telecommunications and the Internet, at DOC, in order to bring some control to ICANN and some accountability over its handling of the .info "abomination".

As a first step, Fred Upton will be challenged on his own special website - - at the start of the new year.

This will be mirrored by a separate site - - where Vint Cerf will be called to account to explain/answer all the detailed questions that he has thus far so remarkably declined to answer on his own forum here.

Thirdly, Hal Lubsen's own special contribution to the defrauding of honest Landrush customers all over the world, and Afilias's failure to run their registry appropriately, will be highlighted on Hal's own special website -

In a determination to develop a true culture of "openness and transparency" the Internet Challenge is now giving friends and relatives, colleagues and associates of these people, a chance to view for themselves the frauds that these three people have presided over... a level of fraud that could have been avoided; a level of fraud that should have been challenged and may yet be challenged; a level of fraud which has required open and transparent explanation - explanation which Hal Lubsen and Vint Cerf have signally failed to offer on these forums.

Now its time for Fred Upton to have his chance for publicity and some chance to disentangle himself from this shambles.

Nor will Fred Upton be the last person to face publicity for his role and responsibilities in this unfolding fraud.

Further key domains have also been reserved for the promotion of this new culture of "openness and transparency".

Happy New Year!
