Joop has seen fit to hold the IDNO up as an example of "democracy" as
he sees it.
The vigorous opposition to the IDNO does NOT come from those who
oppose an individual's constituency, but in fact from some of those
who have most loudly campaigned for one.
The IDNO is not the example of democracy that it's founder wants to
portray it as. And if he insists on pursuing this line of argument,
then the entire mess will be documented here in response to these
Rehashing this argument right now is most certainly NOT in the best
interests of getting a domain name holder's constituency acted on, but
rallying support for the IDNO as the example for that constituency is
also not in the bests interests of a real constituency along those
Joop needs to ask himself if the personal glory he seeks through the
IDNO is worth the price of having this argument again, and if in fact
he wants to see the effort to get an individual's constituency harmed
by his insistence on his personal agenda over the interests of
actually getting this constituency concept advanced further than it

Make no mistake about it. The approval of the IDNO as the domain

interests of those whom it claims to want to represent. And thus
those who believe in doing what is best for those domain holders will
oppose it vociferously.
