IMHO, the statement you make is just the proof that the situation of the
 GA "as is" needs to be improved (in quantity and quality).

But this, again, is just proof that we need to change.

IMHO we need to define a "real" membership of the DNSO-GA, which has to 
go beyond the mailing list, because decisions, recommendations, 
elections, you name it, cannot be meanigfully managed in a single, large
 mailing list.

So, in summary, the GA is not just the GA-mailing list, and we need to 
discuss about a proposal for membership.

Last but not least, if I were ICANN I would pay a lot of attention to 
what is happening to the GA/DNSO, in order to avoid on the At-Large 
membership the mistakes of the GA/DNSO.
