Dear Ms Andjelkovic,

I am contacting you as you are one of the IETF Administration LLC 
Directors.  A year ago, I submitted a short draft [1] to the 
IETF.  One of the issues raised during the discussion of the short 
draft was that there is a risk that remote participants might abuse 
the process.  I am a bit curious about what the IETF Administration 
LLC has done to mitigate that risk, if it exists.  However, that is 
not the reason why I am taking the liberty to contact you.

I came across an announcement about the registration details for IETF 
108.  I was  somewhat surprised to see that a fee will be charged for 
online participation given that:

   (a) it is a change from existing practice;

   (b) there hasn't been any formal discussion about the decision.

I would like to ask you who took the decision to charge a fee for 
online participation for IETF 108.

S. Moonesamy
