@ Scott

According to Gordon Cook, you are not even on the Board.
The Board consists of three Network Solutions, Inc. employees.

Also, of course ARIN is going to have ceremonial people
on the Board to lend legitimacy to their venture. Many
companies do that. This is not new.

Maybe you can review why each of the Board members
were selected ?

Who represents Africa ?
Who represents Canada ?
Who represents South America ?
