Very true. One is infinitely more simple than the other. But when one
cannot get the most simple of the two correct in several months, when it has
been pointed out to them several times, one must wonder how well they

again cropped up, it the seemingly inability for ICANN to maintain its
own mailing depository for "Public Comments"/"Community Feedback"
which is now lacking quite a few posts to it as well. See:
