Has ICANN's ISP Constituency Died?
While it may have been an anomaly that no one from the ISP Constituency bothered to put forward any comments in response to the GNSO PDP on new gTLD policy (the constituency's position had to be drafted by their Secretariat as no one from this ICANN constituency responded to requests for input), we now notice that in response to a 2 February call for comments on the hot-button issue of the year -- the proposed ICANN-VeriSign settlement agreement -- not one single comment has been received... and, as you know, the public comment period has just ended.
So, is it time to fold up this non-responsive constituency? It sure looks like it -- even roadkill moves around a bit in the breeze...
