Re: [ga] Substance over rhetoric - a constructive challenge

Thanks!  Your suggestion is the obvious approach, except
that the number of "instant" at-large members would be a six
digit figure if you count everyone who registered and five digits
if you just count those who confirmed their registration.

And both numbers would be considerably larger had
ICANN had the capacity to process everyone who
wanted to register and had everyone realized that it
was a two step process, i.e. registering was not sufficient
in order to be able to vote.

Esther, you have a bit of clout with ICANN.  This seems
like the obvious starting point, rather than trying to put
something together from scratch, which I feel is doomed
to failure.
