It's the people who sit back and say that someone else is doing it who don't get represented and don't get their way.  So while I absolutely recognize the phenomenon you're describing and wish it were otherwise, the solution is action, not complaint.

	there is no complaint here bill.  there is simply the observation that 
	if I justified an allocation 20 years ago, under the then current policy,
	that it is, at best, presumptious to presume the power of expropriation
	without taking into account the doctrine of eminent domain.  If the 
	RIR's and there active members want to take my right to use space away - 
	I expect to be compensated at fair market value.  I'm pretty sure that 
	those arguments are going to be tested in the courts ...
