ICANN response to Andruff, Cade, ALAC, Greenberg, Leibovitch

In its typical (curt and arrogant) fashion, ICANN has blown off the letter sent to ICANN by Ron Andruff, Marilyn Cade, Olivier Crépin-Leblond (on behalf of the ALAC Leadership Team), Alan Greenberg, and Evan Leibovitch.

ICANN response excerpt:

" . . . As you are aware, the ICANN Board’s New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC) considered the GAC Category 1 Safeguard Advice at its meeting on 5 February 2014. As part of its deliberations, the NGPC considered applicant responses to GAC Advice as well as input from the community, including your Policy Advisory Board model proposal. The NGPC ultimately adopted a resolution adopting the GAC Advice, available at (http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/documents/resolutions-new-gtld-05feb14-en.htm#1.a), along with the implementation framework (http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/documents/resolutions-new-gtld-annex-2-05feb14-en.pdf). In its final actions on the GAC Advice, and after having considered the GAC Advice and community input, the NGPC did not adopt your Policy Advisory Board model proposal. . . ."
