Subject: Vote 'No Confidence' in Ken Stubbs - please resign due to conflict of interest

Message:
 

 
        Vote of No Confidence...

Anyone remotely interested in the ICANN process of selection should be aware of the blatant conflict of interest surrounding Ken Stubbs.

Ken Stubbs is both an applicant for the .web top level domain, and a
chairman within ICANN. He is the chairman of the Names Council,
and is also the Chairman for CORE; one of Afilias' member entities, who are applying for ownership of the .web tld.

How can ICANN possibly select the best applicant for the .web domain with Ken Stubbs involved in the process?

This is the legal equivalent of the defendents' family being allowed on the jury in the courtroom of his trial.

Ken Stubbs should either immediately resign, or be asked to step down by ICANN itself.

Failure to do this will make a mockery of ICANNs' best efforts.
