Hate is a strong emotion, and nothing to do with ICANN has ever warranted
such a level of passion. I have no questions because I don't care. I have
no stake in this drama, nor do the end-users that ALAC is mandated to speak

Non-registrant end-users are not impacted at all. Registrant end-users are
only impacted to the extent that the TLDs associated with this dispute must
be stable if/when launched and that 2LDs registered under them resolve
properly and have adequate protections against hijacking and abuse.

Obviously the dispute is important to you, but I (and end users) have no
horse in this race. If you wish to add one more item to the lengthy pile of
things ICANN does or has done badly, be my guest.
