You keep saying this, but it is still false.

The community includes legacy holders that don’t have contracts. It also includes end users that don’t have voting
rights (until their next renewal and demand of those voting rights by said end users).

The ARIN board is elected by the members… In other words, you have specifically excluded anyone with an interest
contrary to the stated position from electing the board, so of course the board is rather lopsided on this issue. Whether
that is by design or simply by nature is left as an exercise for the reader.
