Re: [IFWP] Re: The Sims-Auerbach Correspondence

Joe and all,

  Well Joe, this seems to be yet another inherent attitude and lack
of oppenness that the ICANN (Initial?) Interim Board seems to be

problem solving, or good communications.  As such I am sure that
the House Commerce Commission will take head in this remark of yours...
