[Membership] Re: NCDNHC favoritism?

I received the following message from Michael Sondow today.

Is this true?
If so, is there some justification for the seemingly unfair treatment?
If not, please correct the situation ASAP.

MS>ICANN has taken the outrageous step of allowing ISOC to use the
MS>ICANN website to publicize ISOC's organization of the Non-Commercial
MS>Domain Name Holders constituency, without offering the same to the
MS>ICIIU and others forming constituencies. ICANN has given ISOC a full
MS>webpage, called "ncdnhupdate"!
MS>(http://www.icann.org/dnso/ncdhupdate.htm), as if ISOC were already
MS>the Non-Commercial constituency, where ISOC has published comments,
MS>discussion, arguments, and their entire proposal for the
MS>constituency, yet no mention of this has been made to the ICIIU and
MS>the others.

MS>This outrageous favoritism cannot be allowed to pass. I ask each of
MS>you to send a protest, in the strongest words possible, to the ICANN
MS>board against this unfair action. If you will do this, we may yet
MS>have a chance to correct them and make them treat the organizers of
MS>the DNSO constituencies fairly. If we don't, we will be excluded
MS>from the constituency and the DNSO, because ISOC won't permit
MS>individuals to join the NCDNHC (see above webpage), and other
MS>constituency organizers are doing the same, in flagrant violation of
MS>ICANN's bylaws, which assure a place for individuals in the DNSO.

MS>Do not allow ICANN to get away with this. Protest!
