(BLet's get some perspective on this. Do you recall the (late, lamented)
(BAt-Large election conducted by ICANN? For that election, bone fides were
(Bestablished via e-mail, with the physical address confirmed by first-class,
(Bsurface snail mail. And I am personally willing to endure up to that level
(Bof bureaucratic red tape once again, even to the point of paying for
(Binternational first-class postage both ways (if some means could be found to
(Bimplement that, so as to minimize the costs for the organization). But I
(Bfind myself reluctant to "jump through hoops" beyond that level. I have to
(Bgo through much of this at my work - I was just issued a Combined Access

(Bcomputers, and e-mail; don't ask the steps involved - but my employer pays
(Bthe costs involved, including my salary for the time it takes me.
(BMy point is, when it gets personal, I have to do a cost-benefit analysis.
(BAnd that applies to every single member, or prospective member of this

(BIf snail mail verification is sufficient, what kind of membership do we
(Bachieve? PayPal? Thawte?
