I disagree here unless there is a vote to change the already announced
policy of the DNSO with respect to the announcements from the DNSO
Announce list. If such a policy change is to be effected, it must be
done by a VOTE or the existing DNSO GA (Members currently)
in order for this policy change to be legitimate.

Until or unless the already extant fraudulent practices of the DNSO GA
are corrected from the existing DNSO GA (Current membership) taking
such a policy would be illegitimate and fraudulent.

Agreed the DNSO needs to have a funding model or method that can
substantiate the body. Membership fees and donations is a good start.

In part I agree here, but the GA distribution database IS the basis for
the membership database, not the other way around as you indicate here
