[ALAC] Fwd: ALAC Response to recent letters regarding At-Large Review

As it turns out, the domain registration is not only protected by a 
privacy service but one that uses non-compliant contact 
information.  Just an accident I am sure.

The Twitter account page it points to has a letter on it that 
identifies a problem that the ALAC wants to be involved in policy, 
coincidentally (but nothing more) similar to a section of the NCSG 
letter. They are very concerned that if we are more active in policy 
work, we will overextend ourselves. Their concern is quite touching.
