What do you think about this: "Areas, such as cybersquatting or hosting illegal content are not part of the remit of the WG. Insofar as they overlap with other forms of network abuse, they may, from time to time, become part of the WG's activities and discussions." >>Without a clear definition, arrived at by way of consensus, of what >>"network abuse" is, I would strenuously object to such an expansion of >>the scope of this WG. >And we're never going to get this.

It is not an attempt (as >always) to be any sort of network police, nor to pass judgement on >such activities in different jurisdictions. I'm not sure that sentiment is shared universally... There may be attempts again, to create policy to sanction abuse and if the definition should derive from the Charter, this could be pretty ugly. A bridge to be burned when we get there though, I guess. definition, cheers, Sascha Luck PS: I might be talking to you alone here, for some reason, while I get the list mails, my replies don't show.
