Re: [ga] If PIR is violating its own advisory charter, why do they expect to have .org renewed?
Dr. Dierker, George and all, Well it's clear that PIR doesn't adhear to it's own charter. So I can again only guess that either PIR has to fire Michael Mann and Angela Stuber or the .ORG registry will have have to be redesigned to another operator very soon.
