[Comment-Dnso] A big problem with the ISP constituency
Dear Mr. Schneider,
We seem to be in different wavelenghts.
What we are discussing here is not how representative EuroIspa
is or is not. EuroIspa is an association that has members in several European

Unless we see a very clear opening before Berlin, we will
present another draft to ICANN next week, a draft for a democratic ISP

Now, two very direct and public questions:
Are the signatories of your draft prepared to open the
document for a public comment period or not? Are they prepared to accept as
founding members all those who wish to be so?.
