[ga] Re: [ncdnhc-discuss] Spanish gov't bans royal wedding domain names

Chris and all,

  Amadeu  is right to criticize this action IMHO.  Yet the govt. of Spain also
has a right to take this action.  But has the ICANN BoD or staff other than
Amadeu taken an official and public position?  If not, why not?
