Well, here's another point that you and I disagree with.  You assume that 
because it makes sense TO YOU that everyone else feels the same way.

I, personally, am a member of ARRL, but I know many hams that are not. Some 
disagree with the ARRL's policies and/or actions .. others feel it's too 
much money to join .. and there are a few that don't know that much about 
them so haven't decided one way or another.
