Actually, what she said (below) was the opposite, that as there is
mistrust in the ICANN community generally, transparency and
accountability are important, and hence there should not be a secret
Anyway, there's obviously a variety of views that won't be squared
through further debate, so let's just vote and move on. As long as
there is no gag order and people's right to publicly declare their
stance per usual is not violated, those of us who are compelled to
abide by transparency will be able to participate regardless and to
avail ourselves of that right at the public meeting.

I think that at a time when there seems to be a lot of mistrust
the ICANN community and. more importantly, when there are many new
entrants/participants and Councillors, it's important to have complete
transparency in the GNSO processes. As such, I don't support the
a secret ballot in this case.
