It's true, when I arrived on the interim ALAC, it was firmly fixated on 
vanity registrants.  I think I was among the first to push it toward 
thinking about the other billion non-registrants.

If you can only imagine that the ALAC is paying attention to the people it 
was created to represent because someone was been paid off, that's really 
rather sad.
