ICANN Ombuds Catches Flack in French

Frank Fowlie's involvement in the kerfuffle over embattled domain registrar RegisterFly.com continues to draw commentary from the online community. French blogger, Stéphane Van Gelder wonders, "A quoi sert l'ombudsman de l'ICANN ?" (What's the Point of an Ombudsman for ICANN). He writes:
The Anglo Saxons have a mediation culture. In business they have set up an official to carry out such function. The ombudsman is the mediator whose job is to try to defuse potential crises. But does ICANN really have a need for such an official?
