Just an update as I have raised this issue on this list a number of times.

I have sent numerous emails questioning the sponsorship packages for ICANN San 

We are now three weeks from ICANN San Francisco and I have not had any answer 
from ICANN staff at all. All I have been told is that is has been escalated to 
Nick Tomaso.

I don't think I am asking too much in requesting some answers here. I think it 
is just plain rude to be ignored (you can tell I don't like it right?).

I guess they have achieved their objective by not responding. We are now a 
sponsor at the inflated rate. We found some budget by firing a staff member and 
not supplying cookies in the staff kitchen. I hope some fellowship folks 
benefit from their trip to the beautiful city of San Francisco that we are 

I look forward to reading how much revenue sponsorship brought in for this 
meeting and what the rates will be for Jordan.

Just remember, I support ICANN and I support newTLDs.
