Hey, Dave, I'm offended by your statement.  I'm no new-comer to
not-for-profits, nor to the standards community either.

Name me ONE OTHER PERSON who has proposed any kind of budget numbers to
forecast the expense side of ARIN.  Where are *your* numbers, sir?  When
did you post them to public review?

As for the anti-trust implications, I suggest you go back and review your
law with regard to anti-trust and the establishment of manufacturer's
standards.  There is case law which is on all fours with ARIN -- I'll leave
it as an exercise to the student to find and understand that law.  (Hint:
look for a case involving interchangable parts -- and don't forget to blow
the dust off the book when you take it off the shelf.)
