I have face to face meetings with some of these entities on a fairly regular
basis. I also have some video conferencing with a few as well. All over the
internet. That is part of what the internet is all about William. I am in
a position to have meetings when *I* choose to have them and *WHEN*
I choose to have them, as well as with *WHOM* I choose to have them with.
Anyone that has a problem with this, can KMA!
However be that as it may, I was *ASK* to represent them and assist in
constructing a Adult domain name constituency. And I declined, because
I do not agree with a constituency based model for the DNSO and will not
engage in divisive practices of that sort in any way, shape or form.

This depends on the group and how and whom decided to formulate it.
The ICANN itself is making this same assumption. It appears that the
NTIA and the DOC do not seem to have a problem with it.

This may be true if after the formation there is elections. But in the
Interim, it may not be so. Just as the ICANN INterim Board has
been formulated. I disagree with doing thing in this manner, but it is
done of a fairly regular basis and on a world wide scale frequently.
None the less none of this comment of yours disqualifies Michael
as the leader of the NCDNHC, as he was the first to formulate it,
and therefore is it's "Founding Father", so to speak. Not only that,
he also has done most of the work and taken most of the ACTION
to get it created.
