Internet Society's Vint 'father of the 'net' Cerf dodges dot-org sell-off during public Q&A

Flow of the article

Part way through is this:

At around 1550 local time, Cerf, as meeting chairman, was handed an iPad and the top question, of 172 asked, was: “What’s your opinion on the .org sale and what this means for not-for-profits?”

Should that not have been immediately followed with the clear statment that the question was ignored ? Why bury six graphs later:

He needn’t have worried because, despite the internet community actively voting to have the issue of the .org sale raised on stage and despite it being the issue of greatest current concern to the 'net governance world, neither the moderator nor Cerf asked it, nor even mentioned its existence.
