Subject: This Forum: Possibly Nothing More Than A Feel-Good Distraction. Just Paranoia?


                ICANN's forthcoming decision on new TLDs may prove this forum is really nothing more than a feel-good distraction, designed to corral most negative comments toward ICANN and the powerful status quo.  Real, positive change (which ICANN aspires to) can only come through dialogue between all parties ... open and transparent. 

If nothing else, this forum has certainly exposed one fact:  Some applicants care what I think, and some don't.  I believe that fact is probably more important than most information contained in any of the applications. 

By not providing identifiable representatives in this forum, those applicants have confirmed their lack of concern for consumers or this forum.   If ICANN awards new TLDs to those companies who have not answered the hard questions herein, ICANN confirms this forum is really nothing more than a feel-good distraction.
