True, but it's not just hams who are affected - elevation of the noise 
level affects all services, including digital ones.  Already the "QRM" 
in the ISM bands, including 2.4 ghz is often the reason for users to 
move elsewhere, which usually means even more frequencies ultimately 
become unusable.  Rational and proactive steps to address these issues 
will be far more effective in the end.  I applaud all efforts to that 
end, including those like the recent approval for adding technical 
expertise to the FCC staff to help them do a better job of regulation 
and policy-making.

Spectrum pollution isn't much different than any other form of 
pollution, and I'm reminded of the popular bumper sticker when I lived 
in a Mississippi River town:   "We can't all live upstream!"
