  • Thread-topic: [At-Large] Respectful Online Communication and Behavior

To Karl and Carlos,

I don't believe that there is anything strange or naïve in the expectation that 
participants in an organization which represents a global community would 
conduct themselves at a level of discourse and behaviour that includes 
respectful communication. This is an international forum for debate and 
discussion, and while no one has the reasonable expectation of Platonic debate, 
neither do participants want to be involved in name calling and behaviours 
which more closely resemble a school yard at recess than an international 
cooperative effort.

There is no proposal that any party not vigorously pursue the advocacy of their 
own position, only that they do so in a manner that is respectful of others.

Dear Karl:

Yes, this document sounds to me some (at least) "naive". Specialy at this 
moment of ICANN history.

When I decided reply this, for an instant I thought to say respectfully another 
strong word, but then I thought in the diversity and cultures and point of view 

In my oppinion we need to see the reality and say in a clear manner how is it. 
whatever being the words uses.
