Thanks for raising awareness of this.

I and a few others have been trying to raise this ourselves for a while among self-styled blogerati.

I've also looked around mainstream media, and apart from the ABC, most seem more interested in soliciting things to fill up letters to the editor column inches, or have I just been looking in the wrong places?
