Re: [IFWP] Is the gTLD Workgroup outcome already decided by the CORE faction? And a criticism of the media.

Jonathan and all,

  You have your opinion and many of us have ours on the issues of
Esther Dysons prevailing behavior.  But the record is pretty clear
that though she is certainly not a "Spawn of the Devil" as you
characterize  this comment you are referring to, improperly, I might
add, she defiantly has a problem with honesty, and reality, as it relates
to the stakeholders and any form of reasonable process...  BTW, I
believe that she is well aware of this problem she has as well...  Hence
I have to agree with William's comment, in full, in this instance.
