Danny and all former DNSO GA members or other interested

As you already know the GNSO was the bastard stepchild of what once
was the DNSO GA and was created in order to limit membership and
open/transparent participation in ICANN and the then DNSO, hence
the name change to GNSO.  The DNSO GA was than disbanded.
Therefore the now GNSO is nothing more than a farce of a placemaker
for ICANN's BoD and staff to manipulate as it sees fit.  Hence your
correct request although well intentioned will only spawn yet another
brain fart storm for finding a way to either bolster this consituency's
membership or migrate it into an already questionably legitimate
GNSO constituency which is already "under the thumb" of the
ICANN BoD and staff.
