This is all nice Jefsey and you PR phrasing is very good too. But
let me again remind you that now with the ALOC, ALAC, and
Esther and Denise's propagation of the therm(s) "@large or
"At-Large" and their current user in existing Domain names
confusion would if not already has ensued as well as has been
stained by the bad reputation ICANN has given these terms.
Hence, although I respect your idea and opinion here, I think
we should not associate ourselves in a new name with the
terms "@large or At-large or ATLarge" ...

Understood. However the term(s) "@large or At-Large or even
Atlarge" are already stained badly and also if we as an organization
use these terms, would cause confusion with ALAC, ALOC and
the Atlarge.org - Esther and Denesies At-large effort.. Therefore
we have no distinction.
