> Hello Chuck,
> Just a quite response that the creation of the Data and Consumer

> The Data and Consumer Protection Working group has only met informally

> identify a set of issues relating to registry data for further
> consideration by the community - rather than to "create" any policies.
> WHOIS wasn't discussed.
> With respect to the text: "Searchable Whois: Refer to the Board Data
> Consumer Protection Working Group to study issues and provide
> information to the Board relating to access and privacy to develop
> recommendations for possible inclusion in the forthcoming version of
> the
> applicant guidebook."   The wording could be better.  The Board is
> asking the newly formed group to study the issues, but I am not yet
> clear what recommendations could emerge.  Your letter is timely in
> regard.
> I agreed to be a member of the working group - partly to ensure that
> doesn't stray too far from identifying issues for further work (e.g
> creating an issues report with appropriate facts for discussion in the
> community), rather than creating policy on the fly at the Board level
> Regards,
