Re: [ga] Reminder

Jefsey and all former DNSO GA members or other interested

  The pro's of ICANN's behavior are few, the con's are many and
varied as well as seemingly expanding..  Working in concert with
government/agovernments is what the MoU and White paper were
all about originally.  ICANN's BoD's and Staff's have found it
difficult to work with government/governments and stakeholders/users
and as a result have created more problems than they started out
with in 1999.  As a result stakeholders from other countries have
become increasingly more dissatisfied with ICANN, and ICANN has
become more entrenched and uncooperative with governments
as well as stakeholders/users and thereby causing harm that was
avoidable and unnecessary.

  So surely you don't want ICANN to become a government in and
of itself?
