Subject: The Facts of the Meeting


      Jon Postel and Bill Manning, at a meeting at the IANA offices, in front of many witnesses (one of which is Mr. Simon Higgs, a long-time participant in these discussions), gave IOD permission to go live, collect fees, and a promise that the process would be complete by the end of 1996. Many people at the meeting have said, on the record, that this happened. Many people who were NOT at the meeting seem to say it didn't happen. I suggest you read the court documents from the 1997 lawsuit where witnesses went on the record as confirming that this happened.
Additionally, I'd ask that you produce something from Bill Manning (the only surviving member of IANA at that meeting, as Dr. Postel sadly passed away a couple of years ago) that directly contradicts this. To date, Bill Manning has refused to contradict it.

I posted this on Afternic and copied and pasted it here. I have done my homework sir. Do yours
