The SAA team is looking for suggestions if it is okay to remove Internet Society; as it is difficult to judge if something is ISOC sponsored/endorsed [1]. Thoughts?

I agree. Where does most of our money come from? Who else specifically works to ensure that the Internet is for everyone? It would be inappropriate to change this policy (and given that BCP45 is in force, it would be against our own rules).

Or the email address of the sender will validate it.

And how often per year does this even arise?

I agree that it would be unfortunate to allow a message that contains a spurious claim of ISOC sponsorship, but this is not about censorship, it's about managing unruly discussions, so we should probably not make a big deal of this.
