Hey Pat, nice to see you on ssnakess.com, I hope to see you post more often.
I agree that it is just rhetoric at this point, as it has always been. I do have a feeling, that Rob and the like are positioning themselves to try and cause action (once again). Simple rhetoric or not, it has the potential to cause damage to the hobby if left without retort (whatever that may look like), would you not agree?
After the 3rd or 4th try, I'm sure they are learning something about what works, I don't think we should just "sit and wait".
I think it will be groups like TARAS, or HISS etc., that can try to bring some reasonable answers to the many questions that will be put forward in the next while. I think if we don't handle this in a responsible and proactive manner now, we will regret it in the future. It is too late to do something after they succeed at their goal, the time to plan is now.
