Hi John

I guess I say "in case" because from my recent experience of getting some
of our end-user group to ATLAS, just as an example, it doesn't matter how
fair or transparent the process may be, there are still people who are
going to attack it on he basis of unfairness or prejudice of some sort. And
you are right, they waste an inordinate amount of time.

My point therefore, is if we are going to have an appeals process because
that is what has been suggested by the Executive Group, then it should be
as short as possible and to the point.

But Im not sure if we are discussing an ICANN process or an independent
process for appeals?
