I can't say I fully understood what either of you just wrote...  To the extent you were saying my email was "ad personam" I think that's a real mischaracterization.  I have no reason to believe that you are anything but wonderful people.  Nor am I dealing in rhetorical tricks -- perhaps dismissing a post with a negative charcterization and asking that it not be responded to in substance could be classified as one, though.

I felt it was fair to note the use of a particular vocabulary, which seems associated with and primarily used by those within a particular movement, that few if any outside that movement seem to understand -- and that this particular usage seems to impede discussions of the very concepts it is intended to describe.

I suppose ICANN and those who participate in it could be accused of the same thing, especially if ICANN wasn't the central subject that it is.  However, I think those with that background freely admit that we use a lot of acronyms and jargon, are happy to help decode it, and for the most part didn't coin it ourselves.

Please! do not feed ad personam.
These are just professionnal rethoric tricks.
