Just what we need.  Less voice for individuals and more of a voice for 
constituents.  And maybe we could make all the constituents require all 
participants to vote democrat in the US. Or socialist in Italy.  And maybe we 
could then require them to pay a fee and be born with a pedigree from royalty 
or have an accounting degree.  The restrictions on individual participation are 
endless, and ICANN won't need to do it, they can have George and Chuck do it.
But first lets give the GA list some voting mechanisms and say it was all 
because of George and so we support his election.  How often have we seen this 
scenario.  But first they attack all of us who decent and say we are not people 
or we just do this because we are mentally unfit.

Thanks Chuck. I don't believe it would be very difficult. One would set the 
mailing list options in majordomo (or mailman, or other list management 
programs) to not automatically approve new subscribers, but instead hold them 
in a moderation queue. Each constituency would be able to have someone in the 
moderation queue (moderation just for subscriptions, not for each actual 
post!), and that person could verify whether a new subscriber was a 
constituency member. If so, they'd approve that new subscriber.

One could have a separate process for "special" people, e.g. former Board 
members, etc. (are Vint Cerf or Esther Dyson still following ICANN?) who wish 
to stay involved or at least stay subscribed.
