Just a few comments …
This organization is suffering from some of the same problems we are seeing in 
many other governmental organizations, that is policy being written by those 
who stand to benefit from it financially, and those who put the interests of 
the board over those who it serves, that is the public.
Technology and the policies that manage it, should not be used as a sledge 
hammer to concentrate power in the hands of a few “economic” interests, and 
their “foundations.” In this model, that we have seen before in the industrial 
age, people and the environment suffer greatly.
We are also seeing a steady, and unnecessary erosion of privacy. ICANN should 
not be adding to it. Privacy is a right. It is fundamental that one should be 
able to start a business in peace and privacy. It is difficult enough to start 
a business. One should have to worry about leeches globbing off it before you 
can get off the ground.
ICANN should not be engaging in commercial cloaking and smoke screen tactics, 
such as hiding behind a “non-profit” status only in strict financial terms.
ICANN should not be engaging in outrageous commercial “negotiation” tactics. 
such as soliciting feedback from the public when you have no intention of 
listening to it.
