Hi Fernando,

To be clear, I think John -wants- participation by as many folks as
are willing. I think he just temporarily forgot that the community and
the membership are not the same thing and it is the -community- (not
merely the members) which provides ARIN its bottom-up foundation of
legitimacy. You can't structurally discourage community participation
and then claim to be a bottom-up function of that community. Well, I
mean you can claim anything but it would no longer be true.
