what the rules were?"

One of the problems is that you keep changing the rules.  New.net asked to 
become a sponsor of the  General Assembly session.  The General Assembly 
welcomed their interest in sponsorship.  But all of a sudden, ICANN staff 
changes the posted rules in midstream and declares them unfit to be a sponsor 
(even though they have sponsored prior events).  

Although none of us were astonished by this episode (we seem to be getting 
used to staff actions that arbitrarily injure particular categories of 
entities), we had hoped to see a higher degree of professionalism from ICANN
