Re: [ga] ICANN Board: Do you hear the people sing?
Rick and all former DNSO GA members,
Your method is not legitimate:
In the com/net/org zones, domain registrants are the only entities
that are authorized to update the domain information. Membership in
the group covered by this document is thus defined as a domain name
owner in com/net/org. A single domain represents a single
registrant on a one-to-one basis. Although many registrants own
more than one domain, attempting to develop normalization
techniques to identify individual registrants are open to
gaming. Because of this, domain ownership is equivalent to voter
registration and each domain will be entitled to a single vote."
No! This [see above] is unreasonable. One registrant = one vote only!
