George and all,

  Yes Mr. Neuman has long ago been recognized as too
predictable, and often wrong/falacious.  The history is
all avaliable and broadly known.  What amazes me is that
Neustar still has the contract with DOC to manage .US.

  In any event, no matter what evidance you or anyone else
may provide, Mr. Neuman will never recognize it or will
find some obscure language to attempt to deflect or discredit
same.  Ergo he could care less.
