Nice editing job, Joop. There is a VAST difference in the GA rules,
and the IDNO rules. The GA rules do not void a persons membership in
the GA, merely their ability to participate in the forum they have
To compare the two is like comparing a prison sentence to the death

And who decided that, Joop? I received the voting email, like every
other member. You made that decision unilaterally. Without any
consultation with the membership or anyone else. Heck, Joop, you
didn't INFORM ME!

NOTHING in that mission is in disagreement with me. I merely see the
distinction between the IDNO and the "Individual Domain Name Owners
Constituency." The two are not the same. Everything else in the
mission statement is consistent with everything I have stood for and

Read previous message. A constituency cannot remove a member who
meets the qualifications. Rules of civil behavior on forums of the
constituency are entirely appropriate, but a constituent is a

Please read it, nothing I said was incorrect or misinterpreted.
But that doesn't change that it is flat our inappropriate for a
charter for a "constituency" or for any organization that claims to
stand for the protection of "rights." The irony of it all is rather
amusing, much like your unilateral action to remove my membership
yesterday without any consultation or notice.
