(Capital letters means shouting - that is why I used them here.)

Eversince the first (and only) ICANN At-Large election required Web access
and the e-mail only netizens were excluded (that means a lot of those in
Cambodia among the few who have Internet accees for e-mail only) I have been
trying to alert people who are happy about their high-speed and broadband access
that many others in the world are happy to get a dialup speed of 33 (or
sometimes less, depending on the technological environment). And the slower things
are, the more phone canrges they cost in many countries, wherewe pay pohne
charges by the minute.

Please, when you reconsider the Web pages, keep us in mind.

I found a nice piece of writing about keeping Web pages low load - if
somebody is interested, I will send it off list.
