Thanks Marilyn. I will send around today a list of revised questions
pursuant to the discussion on the call and your e-mail. Then everyone will
be able to suggest edits to that new version and hopefully we can get the
letters out later this week.
Also, a reminder to everyone, if you have contacts at the organizations
listed on the chart sent around yesterday or have additional entities to
add, please let me know as soon as possible.

Just an online thought about the understanding of the questions. Not raising
any challenge to asking the questions themselves.
Question 8. I suggest that you might want to explain this question a bit
more. For instance, my paralegals will not understand this question as
presently worded. They don't know Port 43 as "type of access". My techies
will, of course. It would be helpful to have it worded so that both
paralegals, techies, and just every day users, like me understand it ...
I'm not sure this is as clear as you would like, Milton. You've used the
word "convenience". For someone looking for contact data due to a consumer
fraud, the issue is urgency, really, not convenience... Maybe you could
think of a different way to neutrally convey this phrase so that it captures
a wider range of reasons.....
Also, the use of the term "justifying" is a little pejorative. Users today
aren't asked to justify their access. Some might think they should be;
others might think they should not be asked to justify.... We are
considering whether and how to change existing policy. We need to use
neutral language in our questions. Could you use a different word and still
get the question across?

8) If you could not use Port 43 Whois data what would you use as the
9) Is the most important factor justifying your access to whois data:
b) convenience of immediate online access
c) no other way to get the needed data
