  Esther has yet again just betrayed all stakeholders/users
by protecting the ICANN board as best she could.
I cannot, nor will any of our members, especially in
your country Izumi support such and individual.

  However, that said, some of you other thoughts below
have merit and are worthy of consideration and thought.
But time short, and the hills are now steeper to climb..
So more comments below your below, Izumi...

  We don't need yet another At-Large advisory committee.
It is a total waste of time, effort, and will accomplish little
of what the stakeholders have already voted and voiced
what they want and deserve.

  Yes it was.  And this alone justifies the board being removed
or a rebid of the ICANN contracts to commence.

  What majority?  Majority of what or of whom?

  The framework is terrible flawed.  Was not determined by the stakeholders
as is required in the White Paper and the MoU, and therefore is not

  This is the only real option that can have an effect now...

  You are very wrong if you think that JUST working inside the ICANN
Structure yet again changed without the vote of the stakeholders will
be effective.

  True, they are not mutually exclusive.  However emphases on the
second approach as you put it here, would more likely bare fruit.

  Who's us??  Which "US" are you talking about here?

  Without a goal, how to reach it is not even relevant...

  Jamie is a friend of the stakeholder/user.  He is because he knows
that it is in his and everyones best interests, both individually and
collectively.  This is what the ICANN BOD and staff do not
understand.  And so far, I see little to no hint that they will be
understanding it in the near term...  But of course, I, along with
many of our members have said all this before..

  You already have a huge audience.  What you/we don't have at
ICANNATLARGE.COM is organization.  We [INEGroup]
have organization.

  Not that big of a challenge.  There are a number of very
good people that are members of ICANNATLARGE.COM.
Most are not recognized properly or adequately.
