A few things...
This was only meant as a starting point. Not everybody involved with Act Up, for instance, was willing to get arrested or lie down in the middle of a busy NYC street or climb the scaffolding of the NIH in Maryland. But every little bit, every little voice that says this isn't right and things need to change helps. You got a better idea, then by all means suggest it. Trust me, there was plenty of screaming at Act Up meetings and plenty of disagreement over the "right" kind of protest.
What about the skaters who were screwed over the years because of judging conspiracies, deal making and the like? Don't their feelings count as well? What about audience members who gave up watching the sport because "it's all fixed anyway, so what's the point"--what about their feelings? This isn't about targeting one skater in an act of revenge. Frankly I didn't have a thought in my head about Adelina when I wrote the post. Not one.
