Well, if they didn't do their job properly, then executive management
should deal with it. If they do not provide proper summaries, that is
poor execution of their job, and they should be dealt with
accordingly. Of course, you think that the problem starts or reaches
to the management and executive levels, so that the general way that
things should work isn't what happens in ICANN.
In that case, if the executive management and senior management are
misleading the Board by doctoring the reports given to the Board,
that's a major issue, esp for a california non-profit, isn't it?
