I think this is a bit presumptious. It may be true that we are not receiving 
fair compensation, but the majority of those discussing or in my case ranting 
over the code has less to do with fees and more to do with not wanting to 
design any structure where I don't have a complete understanding of the 
intention of the code or the performance of the materials. I did believe that 
structures performed as I had expected in past events and don't feel the same 
is presently justified.
It is a search for understanding with very few who seem either capable or 
willing to share this important information with us.
