Subject: Money?  In My Opinion, The Current Directors Are ...


        ... selling out ICANN's financial future, in turn for their hefty compensation packages now.  If I'm mistaken here, someone out there let me know, however, I believe I read some where in the new budget that salaries at ICANN can reach $300,000.00 per year.  That's pretty damn good, and if I made that much working at ICANN, I'm not sure I'd give a damn about ICANN's long term outlook ... I would only care about lasting as many years as I could at $300,000.00 each year.  Every year I boardsquat, another 300 G's.  Not bad.

If ICANN merely set minimum standards for new TLD registries, the ICANN coffers would be much fuller, faster.  They could suck a buck out of every registry, for every TLD.  

Obviously, the current staff and Directors seem not to be that concerned about ICANN's long term outlook.  It seems like more of a power/money grab for the ever-dwindling short term.
