Steve DelBianco submitted them on behalf of NetChoice.  He gave me permission to REVEAL and asked that I let you all know he is happy to answer any questions anyone may have about the study proposals.  

Liz, I know that some - but not all - of my contact information is redacted when I post to the Council list from my Blackberry (which has that pesky automatic e-signature).  Perhaps the method used there could be cross applied here?

Hi Tom,

Yes, I take your overall point!  As to the details of how this came about, the answer has more of a technical reason, not so much a policy rationale.
I wanted to solicit full reach information (which is not usually the case for public comments) so that I could follow up and ask clarifying questions if need be, without revealing all info to the world, but couldn't separate the "name and affiliation" from the reach info, so we opted to blank out all from the public view.  

I guess I'll operate like an OPOC in this case...I will RELAY but not REVEAL!

What strikes me as very strange is that everyone who registeres a domain name in the gTLD world will be held out to the public but persons/groups that suggest further studies on this issue are
