Please note: M3AAWG works to develop technical and operations best practices to fight Internet abuse. We are not a deliverability or reputation forum. We do not lobby government bodies on regulations or legislation. Our membership acceptance criterion covers more than asking if an organization is following the "rules" and staying out of trouble. The membership criteria states: "the Board will assess the applicant’s potential to contribute positively...." “Positively” in this context has many facets, including technical expertise in fighting abuse and public positions on fighting potential abuse.
