[atlarge-discuss] Re: [ALSC-Forum] How to distract the At-large

Jamie and all stakeholders or interested parties,

  The biggest distractions for any At-Large effort and especially
the ICANNATLARGE.COM from what I have seen thus far,
and from many comments from others are as follows:

1.) The Joop -Pinder show appearance.
2.) A poor Discuss/mailing list
3.) Lack of honest recognition of donations of services
4.) The recent ICANN BoD announcements
5.) Esther Dysons meddling and distraction practices and commentary.
6.) Thomas Rossler's and Alexanders controlling of new Mailing lists
7.) Lack of a determination of a funding model and actual funding..
8.) Continued failure of getting ICANNATLARGE.COM incorporated
      as an Non-Profit membership organization...
