www.icann.org ICANN has officially failed to serve the interests of the gay community by not acknowledging and taking action against flawed and biased evaluations by the EIU. Despite evidence that the EIU didn't evaluate the .GAY application in accordance with their own process documents that ICANN approved, including the clear statement that an evaluator (not a core team member) is responsible for verifying letters of support, ICANN is choosing to turn a blind eye to the injustice and protect the EIU instead of the LGBTQIA people and organizations around the world who have called for a community operated .GAY on the Internet .. unless of course the gay community is willing to pay millions for the operating rights. So much for ICANN's integrity with "serving the public interest," especially the interest of the LGBTQIA.
