Dear Dave,

Sorry to hear what you went through but happy that ICANN has been able to take good care of you.

As we have always said, health and safety of community, staff and board is at the very top of our priorities and this experience you had is witness to how much effort Org puts into making this a reality.

Thanks for your words and I wish you the very best,
