Yesterday in my message to one of the colleagues, I referred to as not only
a highly reputable, experienced and highly qualified technical and
administrative personality but also as a highly qualified Diplomat.
I am very much delighted and appreciative for the Wise Advice that you have
provided even though some of us were referring to the Board with some
Your reconciliatory approach to calmly, smoothly and patiently as well as
correctly address the critical issue before us is highly appreciated.
I believe we should not focus on GAC situation rather on principle,
fairness, and wisdom.
Some of us may be emotional at this stage, some others may be frustrated
and some angry.
None of these feelings would contribute to the satisfactory resolution of
*Some of our CCWG quoted from Annexes 1& 2 the following:*
*"If fewer than five of ICANN’s SOs and ACs agree to be Decisional
Participants, these thresholds for consensus support may be adjusted.
Thresholds may also have to be adjusted if ICANN changes to have more SOs
Yes but this does not apply to the spill of the Board.
Imagine a case that only 3 SO/AC invoke the Board Spill ,are we saying that
according the above general text which was *added in harsh to cover other
case than Board SPILL,ACCORDING TO THE ADJUSTMENT RULE TWO SO/AC are
sufficient to Spill the Board.*
*It is totally unrealistic that in an organization with SO//AC two
communities would be able to do so which could invoolve some sort of
destabilization of the entire ICANN.*
*Consequently in the two annex we must add the following:*
*Except for the case of Board recall, **"If fewer than five of ICANN’s SOs
and ACs agree to be Decisional Participants, these thresholds for consensus
support may be adjusted. *Thresholds may also have to be adjusted if ICANN
changes to have more SOs or ACs.”
This is important to be also discussed on Tuesday 23 Feb. Call
