    Maybe. Point is, many months, many hams pay no attention to the editorial, regardless of who wrote it, or what it’s about.

    But that doesn't negate the ones that do.

    Neither does it minimize the disconnect. As you imply, we shouldn’t take ambivalence by some as an indication there is no problem.

    True, and about 80% of hams pay no attention to ARRL, regardless of who supports it, or why, or what it's purportedly about.

    True, we could interpret ambivalence as boredom, apathy, antipathy, or complete disinterest, or as an indication that some have tried and failed to implement solutions, but as it appears all hope is lost, ambivalence becomes a refuge of last resort.

    Depends of course on what one means by "professional."

    Most of us have good jobs where we are good at getting things done, some of those things requiring pretty complex training and/or knowledge.

    We are also good, though, at recognizing obfuscating gobbldegoop at what it is and are not the kind of "professionals" who sling that kind of nonsense for a living (general because those people can't actually get anything done.)

    There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    You missed the point (again).

    I’m not saying, necessarily, that you’re wrong. I’m saying that the opinions of The Usual Suspects here may not be a fair representation or cross-section of the bulk of Amateurs.

    Let’s review who missed the point:

    You said “many hams pay no attention...” to the editorials. Not a very complex observation.

    And your “usual suspects” comment was clearly intended as a not very subtle derogatory description of anyone who has an opinion which differs from yours critical of the CEO’s rhetoric.

    Further, the “bulk of amateurs” don’t even care enough to be League members. That says everything about why they don’t read his editorials BS. Those of us who are members and do read the editorials have valid criticisms you dismiss. We are representative of the people who care.

    You don't know very much about my philosophy. I can guarantee you that.

    I can also quote Shakespeare. I'm not impressed.
