Dear Siva,

What I meant is that the issues of censorship, freedom of expression,
democracy, etc are mostly out of scope in ICANN, short maybe of those
related to objectionable TLD strings that have been debated for a long
time. Such issues need to be addressed in the more global fight for
human rights through other organizations. If I had the magic formula
that would stop censorship and reinstate tolerance and democracy, I
would gladly share it. Alas, I don't.
