auDA should be using ALL material from the ADNA process irrespective.  The 
only reason ADNA crashed was because of my constant pressure for an honest, 
open and public system to be put in place.

I refer to Kate Lances comments in the ADNA mail list as one of the last 
messages prior to the crash.  ADNA was structured like the IAHC and it 
crashed, like the IAHC.  Problem was, auDA came to being to line up with 
ICANN and it's policies are somewhat similar, thus it will crash, just like 
ICANN.  I don't need to help it this time.

When will auDA close all board meetings and remove the ability for the 
public to select board members.  Oh goodness, it's already happened.

I even have a copy of the message relating to a "Public auDA Meeting" where 
only selecting invited individuals were permitted to attend.  <smile>

History and archives are a nasty thing.  Especially in the right hands.

I've read that three times and I still can't quite work out the meaning.

I'm in the habit of recording anything that might be useful.  You'd be 
surprised how often someone DENIES an action or activity, or simply 
re-writes history for the sake of their benefit.

No, the Federal Government was approached by people who gained to benefit 
from auDA having control.  That is not self regulation, nor is it 
regulation by an industry or community organisation.

But I said this in the days of ADNA.  Nothing has changed.

Oh except that I'm sure sometime in the last 12 months I noticed Chris 
Disspain saying that ADNA never existed when one subscriber to the list 
took my advice and raised the question.  Not sure how that worked.  I'm 
sure I can find copies of the postings if I absolutely must prove every 
ounce of every word and denial.  But will that solve anything?

Follow the foot steps.  The processes are not that unique.
