Somehow a photo of the board does not restore confidence. I don't knew fully why.I think you'll find the same goes for any corporate board. What I don't quite get (being personally acquainted with at least 20 of the present or past board members) is how ICANN become so arrogant, for arrogant it certainly is. Without that problem, a lot of their decisions would be less inexplicable.
Of course, there's no way back now from the fundamental blunder of defining any new gTLDs at all.
