Personally, I suspect the FNCAC is the more appropriate forum for public
complaints about NSI's activities under their cooperative aggreement.  The
FNCAC usually meets sometime around October too.  Policy and Politics are
their specialty.

*BUT* since NSI has made presentations at NANOG about their domain dispute
policy in the past, I suppose its only fair to hear from the loyal opposition.
I would ask any such presentation be time-limited, the audience agrees to
sit quietly in their seats, and scheduled as the last thing in the day, so
the rest of us can adjourn to the bar early.
