Wasting Time

Yesterday was the first half of ICANN's "Public Comment Forum" - it ran out of time, people who wanted to speak had to limit their comments, and some people who wanted to speak did not get a chance.

At least an hour of that meeting was taken up by "reports" - such as travellogs about cities where future meetings will be held.

Today's meeting is also a "Public Comment Forum" - and we are now nearly 90 minutes into yet more "reports".

What I would like to know is this:  Shouldn't Public Comment Forums be used for public comment and not be filled with "reports" (many of which are rather vacuous)?
