It was a question for you. Not an answer.

I'm genuinely sorry but I do not see where things are being ignored by
the public. The PC makes guidelines, those are followed, etc. And I
honestly cannot think of a time when either FESCo or FAB or PC make a
decision that was contrary to a majority of what people wanted.
If you could please provide some examples of what you're referring to,
then we can have a discussion about it. But just saying things like
this doesn't really provide a good basis to discuss and resolve any
 with perhaps the exception of patented items such as MP3 where there
is no legal possibility for this to be included freely.
