Thanks Glen, copying the Council as well.

I abstained from the vote on AoC RT selections due to the gender diversity
provisions, which I think are unfair and unnecessary.  ICANN is open to
everyone and always has been open to everyone.  So I see no reason why ICANN
should be promoting one group of people over any other, based solely on
irrelevant personal characteristics such as gender, race, religion or sexual
orientation, etc.
