    If the At-Large Membership wants to play in the field, they should pony up a few bucks like everyone else. And everyone else DOES pony up bucks.

    **********

    Really? What do members of other SO's pay - to the SO and/or ICANN - to be a member? Do their members pay to have a vote? Do the SO's pay ICANN to have representation?

    (I'm a DNSO GA member and am pretty sure I paid neither to join nor vote. I cannot find anything in ICANN's financials to reflect SO revenue, nor any membership fees noted on any of the SO websites. Did I miss something?)

    My apologies Judith. You are right. But as part of the DNSO, you're mixed in with other members beholden to groups or companys with huge dollars at stake, and it seems their best interests are nurtured.

    I don't know why you hang with that lot, anyway. I would imagine at some time it was noble to be there. But since the new TLD fiasco began, there's a real stench coming from the DNSO. You are NOT part of that stench. But the DNSO makes my point for me.

    Can you say Ken Stubbs? Sure, I knew you could.

    Members of the Non-Commercial Constituency of the DNSO pay at least $50 (small organizations) a year. No pay, no vote there. Recently this constituency was threatened with losing its vote in the Name Council, if it did not pay its dues to ICANN.
