Not necessarily true.

You don't need to "own" a computer, you just need to "have access to" a 
computer and a modem (and the telephone line behind that, which may well
 be sometimes *the real problem* in countries with a different 
development model).

Don't misunderstand me, I believe that the vast majority (if not the 
totality) of the people that are participating *here and now* to the 
debate over ICANN *do have* the $20, but I think that it is one of the 
roles of ICANN (and therefore of its Supporting Organizations) not to 
institutionalize this barreer.
