Hi Bill,

I appreciate your response, I remember all of the discussions around 
this change and the positive/negative aspects of it, but it did not 
correct the disenfranchisement of ASN only holders who are customer and 
do have to pay for services which are voted on and affected by the voting.

Thank you,
