I had intended to knock this out on Sunday. After spending a few hours alone with your emails, I have renewed respect for the dizzying job of chair.

Part of the issue is we are voting on five things and one of those five has six options. It is wildly unclear what the call was actually for—and thus, what many people voted for. (For example, I did not weigh in on the five options at all and only the six of the fifth. And if that sentence made sense to you, you're way ahead of me.)

I am using the following as indicative of position:

Maher	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-May/001214.html
Bikoff	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001217.html
Novoa	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001218.html
Kirikos	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001219.html
Corwin	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001223.html
Muscovitch	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001225.html
Cohen	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001228.html
Lerman	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001230.html
Chapman	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001231.html
Rindforth	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001232.html
Keating	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001233.html
Levy	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001234.html
Ondo	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001236.html
Tattersfield	https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/gnso-igo-ingo-crp/2018-June/001237.html

And, using that, came up with the following matrix:

1	2	3	4	5	6
Maher	Y	N	N	N	N	N
Bikoff	Y
Y only if 1 has no support
Novoa			Y
Kirikos	Y	N unless rephrased	N	N especially no subsidies	Y	Y
Corwin	N	Y	Y	N	N	N
Muscovitch	maybe	maybe	maybe	Y	maybe	maybe
Cohen	Y		Y with changes
Lerman	Y	Y	N	Y	Y	Y
Chapman	Y	Y	Y	Y	Y only in part
Rindforth	Y	Y	Y	Y current version	Y only in part
Keating	Y	N	N	Y	N	Y
Levy	Y	N	N	Y only if 1 has no support	N
not without changes
Ondo	Y				1
Tattersfield	can live with	not without changes	can live with
1, 4, 6 (not 2, 3, 5)

To me, this indicates clear support for Option 1 (with only one no). However, as you can see, I kind of lost the thread of it near the end as people noted five rather than six options and then sometimes voted on five and six.

In any case, I think it is clear that we are confused and respectfully recommend that we set up a Doodle!!

I recommend that each "option" be completely spelled out in the question (not, "What is your support for Option 1" but "Here is the entire text of Option 1; what is your level of support?").

I recommend that each answer be as follows: Support, Can Live With, Do Not Support, and Support With Changes [text field for changes], Do Not Support Without Changes [text field for changes].

This would allow (a) clarity!! which we are all clearly in need of; (b) black-and-white answers for those who wish to give them; and (c) options including grey area for those who wish to make changes.

>> Petter:
>> You did not record the positions that I emailed on May 26:
>> I support the four recommendations. My support of recommendation 4 is reluctant; in principle I am not in favor of special treatment for any participant in a UDRP or URS proceeding. In this case, referral of the question to the IC ANN Board is an acceptable compromise that fulfills one of the group’s obligations under our charter.
>> I support Option 1.  I understand staff’s concern “that resolving a procedural question (immunity from jurisdiction) can automatically reverse a substantive panel finding, where the court has not had (and will not have) the opportunity to hear the case on its merits.” This problem will only arise if an IGO takes advantage of a UDRP or URS proceeding and then hides behind immunity. It appears from this group’s discussions that IGOs have had few or no problems in supporting their names and acronyms in court and administrative proceedings. For future proceedings, I believe it is justifiable to bar IGOs from invoking an intrinsically unfair legal maneuver.
>> I do not support Options 2 and 3. I do not believe that the deliberations of this group have shown any need for a new procedure.
>> I do not support Option 4. I initially supported this option, but, on reflection, I believe our report and recommendations (assuming that Options 2-6 are not supported) fulfill our obligations under our charter,  and there is no need for a referral to another WG.
>> I do not support Option 5. I have seen no evidence to support the need for a procedural rule that would have limited applicability in courts around the world.
>> I do not support Option 6. Adding mediation to the UDRP procedures should be a question for the RPM WG. The second sentence of this option appears to duplicate Option 1.
