Rather than use the term "members", if you use the phrase "posting
on their employeers behalf" I suspect less than half would qualify.

True enough.  That should be somewhat easy to tell though, how many
addresses are subscribed to ppml?  If the answer is 169, then they
just don't know. :)  If the answer is 1800 or more, then they are
probably happy (I don't think afraid is likely here, but you never
know).  Someone from ARIN will have to disclose how many people are
on the list though, if they want to make that public.
