Beckstrom's Trademark Application

Hi folks,

Truth is stranger than fiction.  Did ICANN's Board do a background check when hiring its CEO?  Take a look at the TM application by Rod Beckstrom

"Bull****ters Anonymous"

It was refused as being "immoral."

According to the dictionary (referenced in the USPTO file on the application), the definition of the noun variation is:

"Something worthless, deceptive or insincere."

Perhaps this is what ICANN's Board was looking for, someone that would fit the culture of ICANN perfectly, and take the deception and insincerity to new levels?
