So, besides whine in a newsgroup (using a pseudonym), what have you done
to help the situation?

Have you made any concrete proposal, and brought it to the attention
of the chairs of the appropriate Congressional committees?

Have you filed amicus briefs so that courts are aware of the problem
and the solution?

Have you written opinion pieces in publications that are likely to
be read by people who can make the changes you suggest?

In fact, what is your suggestion, and why would it make things better?
