As a chair of the DNSO, I see some pretty basic conflicts of interest
here. Also there is not need for ICANNATLARGE.COM to use
such donations for this sort of thing. Majordomo e-mail list software
is free and easy to install and implement... So why use Fitug.de
as the host when ICANNATLARG.COM can host their own

Each motivated member should be engaged in outreach to attain this
goal IMHO. That is how we [INEGroup] do our outreach. It works
very well too!!
