Dear Gene:

Your request has been received and will be posted on the Reconsideration Committee webpage within the next day -- http://www.icann.org/committees/reconsideration/recon-committee.htm.

Please take a look at the Reconsideration Policy -- http://www.icann.org/reconsideration.html.  That policy sets minimum requirements for the information that must be contained in a request for reconsideration:

"A request for review or reconsideration must be filed within 30 days after (a) the affected party or its affiliate receives notice of the action, or (b) ICANN posts notice of the action on its web site, whichever is sooner. Requests for review or reconsideration must be submitted by email to reconsider@icann.org. No particular form is required, but requesting parties must include at least the following information:

- name, address, and contact information for the requesting party, including postal and email addresses;
- the specific action of ICANN for which review or reconsideration is sought;
- the date of the action;
- the manner by which the requesting party will be affected by the action;
- whether a temporary stay of the action is requested;
- what specific steps the requesting party asks ICANN to take - i.e., whether and how the action should be reversed, cancelled, or modified;
- the grounds on which the action should be reversed, cancelled, or modified; and
- any documents the requesting party wishes to submit in support of its request.

"If a temporary stay of the action is requested, the requesting party should identify what harms will result if the action is not stayed."

This may seem duplicative to you, but the policy requirements are clear and apply equally to everyone. More importantly, the formal request for reconsideration constitutes the record on which the Reconsideration Committee must make its decision. For example, the request has to state the date of the decision for which reconsideration is requested, so that the Committee can determine whether the request falls within the 30 day time limit. The request previously filed by Eric Brunner simply covers these points one-by-one.

In order to make the best possible case for your position, I suggest that you resubmit your request, including the information required by the Reconsideration Policy.

With best regards,
