font-size:10pt;"><div>The difference in the vote in question and what Philip 
puts forward below is that some potentially ex-Councilors may be voting on 
personally receiving payment for travel to Seoul. That is not the same as 
appointed/elected Councilors voting as representatives of their constituencies 
on policy issues that affect that constituency as a whole.</div>
<div>If the vote in question was about funding Councilors, that also may be 
different. But it is about funding ex-Councilors and IMO that creates 
a&nbsp;personal benefit to an individual. I know there is the issue of timing 
as Kristina pointed out. There likely isn't an&nbsp;easy answer, which is why 
I&nbsp;believe we should not be voting on this at all.</div>
<div>I would also request that Staff take up this issue with Kevin and let us 
know if we are just wasting our time. If a consensus or a majority of 
Councilors/ex-Councilors is not going to sway ICANN to increase funding then
