Censure of Interchain Foundation for harming competitive marketplace for validation

This governance proposal seeks to censure, formally notify via governance, the interchain foundation that they are making the Cosmos hub weaker by delegating to validators who do not participate in governance, do not contribute to the community or to software development, and have abysmal uptime.

Governance cannot modify the policies of any token holder, but governance most certainly can pass a censure text proposal.

Here is some information about the ICF delegations, most notable among these is the random string.

Governance votes

The following items summarize the voting options and what it means for this proposal:

YES - vote yes to censure the interchange foundation for harming the competitive marketplace in validation on the cosmos hub and pursuing ICS in bad faith because they have been made aware that they make delegations to validators who do not participate in governance and have poor performance and yet have made no moves to correct this for approximately a year since the first report by moonboy84.
NO - vote no if you do not wish to censure the interchain foundation.
NO WITH VETO - Indicates stronger opposition to the proposal than simply voting ‘No’. If the number of ‘NoWithVeto’ votes is greater than a third of total votes, the proposal is rejected and the deposits are burned.
ABSTAIN - You are impartial to the outcome of the proposal.

This is very easy to resolve without a gov prop to censure the icf, but all attempts by myself and others have failed.

The random string validator and numerous other icf delegates are harmful to Gaia, and that’s the bottom line.
