[Comment-Dnso] Re: [IFWP] Re: [dnso.discuss] Modifications to ICIIU Guidelines a nd NCDNHC definition

William and all,

  I am afraid it is difficult to follow your logic here.  If an
is by design non-commercial it necessarily follows that commercial
entities should not, in and of themselves be allowed as members,
otherwise it is no longer a non-commercial organization.

  On the other hand, commercial interests should be supportive of
non-commercial entities to formulate their own Constituency as it is
a healthy thing for the broader Stakeholder community as well as the
long term health of their own organizations as well.  This makes
IMHO, the actions of the ISOC questionable on their face.
