Patrick - can you point out that Stacy Burnette, Director of Contractual 
Compliance, has replied to a question raised on the public participation site.


She says: "Thanks for posting this comment regarding ICANN's WDPRS. We were not 
aware that follow-up notices were not being transmitted to reporters. I have 
asked the site administrator to address this problem right away.

As you know, the follow-up information ICANN receives from reporters is 
extremely important in determining whether registrars are taking corrective 
action regarding Whois data inaccuracy reports.

Again, thanks for your comment and you may contact me directly at 
stacy.burnette@icann if you have any other concerns regarding the WDPRS."

The site admin (Kent) is looking at the issue.

ICANN would welcome the names of people who have had any problems so we can 
contact them directly and find out what the issue was and if there are still 
ongoing problems.

With apologies for the short notice, I plan to request in AOB that the
Council receive from staff a brief report on the status of WPDRS.  I've
seen several messages in the past day or so regarding reported problems
with WPDRS.  Given the importance of the WPDRS to Internet users, it
would be helpful to have more information (e.g., whether there is a
problem, what the problem is, how long it has existed, when it will be
