> Weak response. What would you have it do? You have no serious agenda, which is why you're coming off as obstructionist. You seem to be keen to prevent it from doing something that most people think it was created to do, but you have not suggested anything serious that it should be doing, except perhaps sit around and quibble about what it should do.

I don't blame you for thinking that since you're not a Best Bits participant (though you're welcome to be one!), however we are actively developing substantive and procedural inputs for the Brazil meeting through the Best Bits network, and I'm helping to facilitate that.  I'm also a member of the Civil Society Internet Governance Coordination Group that helped select the candidates for the Brazil meeting committees.  And additionally I'm helping to plan a civil society pre-event in Brazil.  So this is just to set your mind at rest about me being obstructionist.
