www.icannatlarge.org seems to have 1,000 members signed up including me,
though I have never participated in a www.icannatlarge.org discussion nor
been contacted requesting my views on anything by www.icannatlarge.org
so, www.icannatlarge.org does not represnet my view nor have they ever
asked for it. www.atlarge.org is just a couple of pages and though it may
aspouse to represent the internet community has no participation, members,
or lists behind it.

nor do any of the above mentioned websites. Insted of standing up and
stating that you, me, or anyone else represents the "at-large" lets work
on building a framework for membership in ICANN. Once established they
can elect a representative that MAY represent the views of the "at-large"
