You see one thing that always prevented me from doing psychiatry was
that I can rarely tell who is insaner, the patients or the
doctors. (Had a fascinating encounter once when in one of my former
lives as a nurse I delivered a schizophrenic to a mental hospital)

Personally I like the headline, though I suspect that those lunatics
in the asylum will get themselves sorted out, FINALLY.

I read their statement, it is almost as ridiculous as the whole
election process. AND, knowing from personal experience what living in
a dictatorship means makes me wonder about the Carter Center's voting
observation program in general.
Anyway, The registration site was basically unavailable for
registration, and ICANN have all but admitted that this is by design
though the reason they give is rubbish. And then even if you got
through the PIN numbers didn't arrive even in Germany.
Now I could understand that mail to such excotic countries as Namibia
may take a while, though it hasn't been my experience so far. In any
case the mail from us to the US seems to work very well, because when
we sent ICANN a support check cleared like lightning :-)-O).
I suspect the lunatics are trying to stay in command and to comply
with your employer's wishes.
And, as a personal observation, that you would deem it necessary to
inform IT Professionals through sound bites from a seventh rate
publication defies comprehension.
But then, what is new?
