Bill - I said "interested in participating", not "well informed";
please do not paraphrase my remarks when they are already quite 

The ARIN Board has considered this particular matter (of fees and
membership) at length, and it is important to have a well-defined 
membership for the proper running of the organization. This is very 
common for 503c6 business associations (which is ARIN's incorporation), 
and attempting to compare this with a citizens right-to-vote issue 
is quite misplaced.
