Subject: Comments about ICANN
My name is Douglas Muth, and I am writing to you to
comment on the
fate of ICANN.
I have serious issues with this organization and their
ability to make
themselves accessable to the public, or the lack thereof.
For example, I joined ICANN as an "at large" member
some years ago.
This was presumably to allow me to have some say in how
ICANN was run.
This turned out not to be the case, as the number of
communications I have received from ICANN since then
Also, I feel I should point out that after Karl Auerbach
to the ICANN Board, they tried to block him from attending
meetings. After Karl successfully sued them, they retaliated
changing their own rules to no longer allow public seats
on the board.
This is a very strong blow to the culture of "openness" that
on the Internet. You can read more about this story at:
Thanks for your time.
