No, looking at it, the biggest noise seems to be among DBAs, programmers, 
system designers and the like who are like the engineers at Morton Thiokol  who 
were saying 'There is a problem, we need to look into this' and 'I don't think 
we should launch', when the folks a bit more removed were saying 'Oh, we 
haven't had a failure yet, so what if it isn't working exactly as designed'

The time to FIX things is BEFORE they fail.  Now the ARRL MAY have plans to do 
so, but so far, they aren't telling us
