Far be it for me to discuss what you do or do not do for your personal pleasure.

As I said, I have not really followed the Registrar-ALAC interaction, so could not really comment.  My point was that specific statements about specific areas of ICANN-ALAC should be the focus and that hyperbole (something I engage in at times, I must admit) rarely holds up to  inspection or counter-example.

Perhaps it would help to produce some of the counterexamples where the Registrars have indeed taken the advice of ALAC to heart and changed something because of it.
