I am just puzzled on how we are going to "verify" that somebody is a member
of a constituency.
Wouldn't it be much simpler if the members of the constituencies joined at
least the GA-announce list?
Also, I can understand that somebody may be willing to avoid receiving the
traffic (and noise) of a public list like the GA, but I don't think that
somebody that is not even subscribed to the GA-announce is showing great
interest in the DNSO (personal feeling only, of course).
