I was saddened (and sorry annoyed) when Chair Fritchie opened the 2013 AGM by quoting a mistake in the press stating that Nominet had ‘manufactured concerns’ in 2008. This is a continued attack, and continued victimisation, in my view, of a whistleblower who brought four counts of wrongdoing by Nominet to court, and won on all four counts. The error was the result of an interview for The Register conducted at about 3am USA time 17 Aug 2012, whilst we were on holiday. The error was corrected in an email sent to Journalist Kevin Murphy of the The Register the same day. This error was publicly corrected in a ‘Response to Chair Fritchie’ s FOI ‘fact finding review’ on 12 October 2012. So what we may all ask? Well, whilst we are all confused by the anger and insults we remain distracted from the real issue that should cause concern and I’m sure Nominet would like us to forget. On 16 Aug 2012, Nominet published a statement to members denying that they had instigated government intervention in 2008. In her sworn witness statement, CEO Lesley Cowley stated that they did. Which is true?
