Remember, there are over 710,000 hams and only 160,000 or so belong to the ARRL.  1/5 of the ham population is heard by the FCC from this organizations input and many times the ARRL's opinion is not the opinion of their members.  

To see the extent of what goes on in the picture modes, set up a station to copy slowscan, even if you use one of the free computer software options, and just put your RX on one of the slowscan watering holes and let it record the goings on over 24 hours and then review the images.   Can be quite graphic at times.  And you thought sending the picture of the  nekkid lady on RTTY from a perf tape was bad.
