[icann-eu] Where are the ALM-Directors?

NSI is selling their whois-data. Isn't privacy a real political issue? 
Don't we think differently about in Europe compared to the US? An 
issue that every DN-owner most likely cares about? Do the ALM-
Directors have something to say about it? Do they get contacted by 
concerned netizens? Wouldn't it be their responsibility to raise there 
voices, or should the EC be concerned and formulate those?

What does it tell us, if they 1) do not get contacted by netizens (they 
do not have necessarily to be ALM-voters, or not?) and 2) if they do 
not even have anything to say about it?

If we come to the conclusion that it would be their responsibility to 
say something, how should they do it? Via interviews, on ICANNs 
website, with a collective statement, if they are not allowed to use 
ICANNs website?

Lots of questions. But I believe its about time to discuss those, if we 
want to understand how the ALM should function and if not, why not.
