Uh, many people are TRYING to be the change. Launching petitions, FB pages, writing articles, trying to round up skaters in support of anonymous judging, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. So if such an attempt to change the world fails, then what's next? Continue beating on the wall?

I wish I knew, and understand what you mean about fighting fire with fire. But I also feel that the "fire" approach will badly hurt FS as a whole without benefiting the skaters in any way. After all, what good is an OGM or any medal if it's not won fairly?

No. It's because these are the countries -- without top skaters -- who are used to collude with larger federations to influence results.

As I've been saying, these are the people running the sport ... into the ground.

Maybe ISU tech guys told them unofficially that Yuna lost in Sochi for most of judges.
