Very kind of you to be so supportive.   However, I said I would resign  
if what has happened took place.

The business constituency and its executive committee will have a hard  
task of convincing any business why they ought to be involved with a  
very narrow interest base with diminishing membership profile beyond a  
very small group of ICANN insiders.

I wish the group well.
