Without taking sides or casting blame, I am starting to be concerned with whether the BC will be standing in the end if this list continues to be filled with personal spats and accusations.

I don't know about others but I barely have the bandwidth to read all the BC and other ICANN e-mails on substantive issues of import to my client, much less for digressive disputes that leave me feeling the need to take a long hot shower after reading.

Can't we find a way to disagree on issues without being disagreeable? 

The BC issue I am concerned about right now is that we have a proposed BC charter revision just put on the table in the last week which apparently has to be forwarded to ICANN in final form in less than two weeks. As I read that proposed charter I have concerns relating to BC members' ability to effectively advocate when they have an issue viewpoint at odds with the BC consensus, internal resolution processes, and budgeting. Is there a way we can get back on track to have a reasoned discussion of that proposal that accommodates consensus revisions in the limited time we have to consider it?

Thank you for your attention. Give peace a chance.

Sure, why don't you release *all* the material, including the
ridiculous letters sent to me, without any evidence, including that of
August 17th? The "confidentiality" was insisted upon by your side to
protect you, not me. Let's have it all out, and see who is left
standing in the end.
