I am not represented by any other constituency or stakeholder group. They won't have me. I have been refused membership by both the registry constituency and by the business constituency. I am not non-commercial, so I don't fit in the NCUC; I am not an ISP, so no going there; the IPC is unfriendly, to say the least.
Which significant, well-established ICANN venue am I supposed to be part of? In fact, the only venue open to me is my regional association in ALAC.
Why not listen to arguments on their merit instead of trying to exclude people?

Registries are amply represented by other constituencies in ICANN. They hardly need NARALO to get their points across as "individual Internet users."
