1. I attended nearly every board meeting during my term, including 
several outside of N. America.   My record is still online.  Why would 
one want to disseminate such a sorry canard?

In addition, after my seat was erased I attended ICANN board-created 
committee meetings in Europe and elsewhere at which I was instrumental 
in in mitigating the destruction of the system of publicly elected 
directors that had occurred by helping to bring forth the representation 
(albeit limited to one seat) that the public now has on ICANN's board.   
I might suggest to those reading this that they inquire as to the names 
of the prime movers on ICANN's board who sought to erase the system 
which had brought publicly selected directors onto that board.

And up to that time I was the only director who had ever bothered to 
exercise due diligence and inquire, as a director is empowered to do, 
into the adequacy of ICANN's business and financial practices. As a 
result of my efforts ICANN's financial position was made more clear (for 
instance I clarified whether a $667,000 body of money was a loan to 
ICANN, a gift, or a pre-payment on future fees), and as a result of my 
efforts ICANN began to formalize its employee policies and bring them 
into conformance with the law, and as a result ICANN began to require 
more formal documentation and approvals for travel, and as a result 
ICANN's board was put onto a road that eventually resulted in better 
taking and publication of minutes and votes.
