Than you will need to choose which constituency you wish to belong to.
This is the nature of a constituency model to be built within the DNSO.
I completely disagree with it, but the ICANN Interim Board decided to
act in Singapore otherwise against the grain of consensus. Hence you
have a situation that is by design, divisive, as I and many others have
our before and just after the Singapore conference. So, as I said you are
going to have to decide which side of the fence you are going to stand
from a personal and a professional standpoint under this scheme. Hence
as I said, you either are going to be part of the non-commercial
or you are not. If not than again as I said the non-commercial constituency
is none of your or my concern.
> I am MOST interested in this aspect.
I am interested too. So what? I am only interested to the degree that
I am non-commercial or believe that non-commercial Domain name
holders are beneficial to the commercial ones in some aspects. I cannot
say in all honesty that I could or should join a non-commercial constituency
as I am not non-commercial in my business conducted on the Internet.
Given that, YOU should consider where you wish to stand. And as such,
leave the leadership of the non-commercial domain name constituency
to those that are ONLY non-commercial in their presence on the internet
and the choice of who and how their leadership is to be determined.

Yes, and so what?

Oh, YOU feel, huh? Well that is fine and dandy! Than join the NCDNHC
and make your presence known, or formulate your own non-commercial
constituency and submit it to the ICANN and the DNSO for their approval.
But understand that when you do so that it is likely that you will not
be taken seriously as your and DNO.NET is not a non-commercial organization
as you will be viewed with a jaundice eye as will your formation of a
non-commercial constituency as you are going to be viewed as staking
a position that you are not really associated with...
