It's always baffled me why the amateur community will wish that someone who 
breaks the law and abuses ham principles and frequencies will "get legal" 
and get their license.  Sounds like we want to dilute the pool of legal hams 
with criminals.

So we end up with some law-breakers among the larger amateur community.  And 
foul the ham reputation just a little bit more.

No wonder we're having a hard time getting young people.  If I was a parent, 
I wouldn't want my kid to be exposed to hidden criminals.
