Elaine - and I say this with love in my heart - step away from the keyboard.

You don't "see this happening" because you're not paying attention.

Scroll down on the main topic page on this BBS and you'll see over a dozen requests for comments for MLPA and other ocean-related issues from DF&G and others. There are announcements about what's going on, how you can get involved, etc.

What more do you want?

And don't you dare point to the stakeholders as not making an effort. That's the biggest load of crap I've heard yet. We collectively make repeated requests of the dive community to get invovled and when they don't, either on an individual or organized group basis, we can assume they just don't care enough or as much as we do.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

End of second rant.
