Re: [Membership] Re: NCDNHC favoritism?
To clarify, before finally leaving this thread, ICANN _has_ provided ICIIU
with an individual webpage, http://www.icann.org/dnso/NCDNHC_Update.htm, on
which we have posted exactly what Mr. Sondow supplied to us.
Again, please send further questions or comments on this topic to me
Now, let's get back to the important work of discussing the membership
