I haven't joined yet either. Three reasons:
(1) I would have to join as a vendor, since I am a consultant - and I
can't as yet see the ROI.
(2) I see the similarities here to another group that I belonged to ...
and I don't want to go down that path again.
(3) I have a real problem with joining a group where participants pick
and choose what laws and regulations they will and will not follow - and
try to rally people to oppose such laws.
Now you can argue all day about whether I am right or wrong in this
viewpoint, but that is MY perspective and you cannot change that no
matter how much arguing you do.
Let's use a real world analogy. Let's say this was a NASCAR list. And I
got a speeding ticket on I-4 going 88 in a 70 when there were maybe 5
cars on that stretch of straight, flat plain, 3-lane highway. And I moan
about the ticket and how unfair it was. "It was entrapment. The cop
was in a unmarked car hidden behind a concrete barrier. So what if I was
speeding! There was no one around. Blah blah blah." It's a banal
argument and a waste of bytes - and an admission of guilt.

On another subject....
Two months ago, we were ready to join WISPA. At the time, I felt that
WISPA had proven its longevity and was becoming a mature voice for the
WISP's. But, after the form 477 issue, FCC sticker issue, and now
the CALEA issue, I'm pretty sure that I disagree with the majority of
the members on what stance should be taken on these issues.
That being the case, why should I still join?
