I can understand your situation.  Sorry to hear about your dial-up situation

I don't think not wanting to be involved in the admin stuff means you are a
"poor member" at all!  I completely understand that position and think it
certainly still valuable to have people that only are interested in "real"
project work to be members.

But even those members should at least scan the members list to get a
picture of what the Foundation is up to :)
