Not only are you right, but per se, the IETF is not a non-profit.
Further most people who participate in non-profits do not fit the legal
definition of "member". In the world of non-profits, that term has very
specific meaning and carries very specific obligations. Hence most non-profits
avoid it by having "subscribers" or the like who are not actually "members".
At base, I cannot figure out why anyone keeps feeding such trollish topics, I
thought it might at least be amusing to comment on the term member.
