So, let's keep hearing what was wrong, but same conclusion.

I am interested in a conclusion on what to do about it. Perhaps nothing, as there are bad apples in every bunch and I'm not interested in rules to prevent every exception. However, as I've said before, it wouldn't bother me to see severe restrictions in the mobility of these vessels with anything other than a highly qualified crew, no passengers, no fake paid crew.
The corporate mentality and culture that worships profit at all costs is ok when dealing in electronic gizmos, probably NOT when dealing in the safety of crews.
