Maybe someone else in ALAC will take a bite of this, but not I. ICANN
hasn't had any real public accountability in decades, dating back to when
direct Board elections were eliminated.
The "Empowered Community" is a pure exercise in Orwellian doublespeak;
under current frameworks the inmates are in full control of the asylum. So
if the current "bad" activities indicate a gap in such self-accountability,
those of us outside the bubble can be forgiven for shedding no tears.
ICANN is publicly unaccountable by design, and the domain industry of which
you're a part is an architect of that design. So don't come pleading for
help just because that unaccountability now works against *you*, in much
the same way as it has worked against the public interest as long as most
here can recall.
