I'm the CEO of the Internet Society and posting with that hat on, but
from this address out of convenience.

I'm replying to this in order to stop such speculation from taking
hold.  There have been no additional constraints on membership of the
internet-policy or any other ISOC list since last November.  The
interface for subscribing is awful because it was added to an
off-the-shelf association membership system.  You need to be a member
of the Internet Society to join its lists due to a side effect of the
way we understand the GDPR to work and our liability under it (it's a
little different for newly-created lists).

Best regards,
