  So did I, as have others thus far.  It's good to see that you are not
interested in any leadership role given you short term memory problems

  Yes.  But it seems that ICANNATLARGE.COM is a commercial
site and is owned by JoopT as well as being hosted by JooT's
company as well.  This is a bit troubling if this effort is to be
considered a true/legitimate At-Large.
