Basically you are saying that you do not have an answer to the
problematique that I have posed - which incidentally goes to the heart
of ICANN's main public function.

As for what I do, my organisation <http://www.itforchange.net/> does not
have to prove to anyone either about the substantiveness or the
diversity (or the impact) of our work.

As for the rest of your email, I simply take it to be a very offensive
effort to censor my participation here, just because I raise issues that
are uncomfortable to you. I am very sorry you are restoring to such
desperate tactics. I do not know if there is an official minder of this
elist or not, but if there is one I would request her/ him to take
notice, and give verdict on this unfortunate interdiction.
