George and all,

  I read the Form 990 and the latest PR from ICANN and did some cross
comparing as well and found what you did George.  I was so disgusted
that I didn't even feel I could adequately express such in any coherent
way. Seems to me that perhaps the IRS needs to do some of the same
cross checking?  Well if they do a actual formal complaint will need to
be filed in order to have such investigated further and than perhaps
some amended filing will be forthcoming from ICANN, but I doubt such
will be in the near term.

  One can contact the appropriate Treasury inspector general regarding
such a consideration at:
