It all indicates evasion...
They just never explain, or dialogue, or communicate
in a natural human manner...
It's indefensible, they are responsible for a WORLD
commodity (administration of the DNS)...
Accountability, transparency, openness
Continuing serious issues are raised by fair and serious-minded
people... and these concerns over fraud and abuse just go unanswered and ignored...
is corruption in my opinion...
As an ordinary person not associated with the domain
industry, just a member of the internet community, I'm shattered and disillusioned
by this cynicism...
I repeat: why don't ICANN enter into dialogue, why doesn't
Vint Cerf answer sensible questions, why does ICANN evade all these concerns?
asked Vint Cerf to state ICANN's policy on fraudulent registrars and continuing accreditation...
I referred to Yesnic's 200 Sunrise names (many challenged) but I asked him to state
the general policy and avoid specific companies...
I e-mailed him and copied the
e-mail here on ICANN's own forum...
He replied with a one-liner: "I'll take a look

What is ICANN's
answer to these questions (and all the other serious concerns which have been rationally
posted on this forum over many months)?
There is no answer.
Just refusal to enter into reasonable dialogue.
this as indefensible.
I challenge Congressman Fred Upton to address ICANN on these
What kind of people have "taken possession" of the DNS system, which
is a worldwide resource, for use by the whole human community, with VAST potential
What kind of cowards evade, and refuse to answer, and condone abuses,
and recommend fraudulent companies?
Why won't ICANN enter into dialogue with people
who believe in transparency and identify serious concerns?
I believe in a free
world, and open government, and transparent dialogue and communication. Is ICANN
just another symptom of a corrupt business culture (like ENRON) which exploits the
Free World, but undermines its fundamental principles?
America, the Land of the
I'd like to think so, but I regard ICANN as a shameful and evasive organisation
because it shuns the most basic principles of freedom : honesty and openness, accountability
and democracy, dialogue and transparency.
The rest of the world deserves a better,
a more decent, a more open agency to guard and protect the internet and its community.
