Thanks for your pragmatic view of things.

The reason why I haven't sought your vote is because you're in Supply class and cannot vote for me as a Demand class candidate.

Option (3) is pretty much what I did with the aid of the public auDA member list (, my personal email contact list and Google.

There are also a number of Demand class members who I have spoken to face-to-face and on the telephone.  Which leaves a small number of Demand class members who I cannot find any contact details for at all (eg Warner Village Theme Parks).
