Do you think a write-in to OIG would do any good? Surely, OIG must 
realize the impact this will have on the observing community. 

This means the end of TLE resources on the NET that produce weekly and 
other frequently grouped elsets (given the existing restrictions on the 
OIG web site). Am I correct?

Do you think there is anything the "user" can do?

June 30 will certainly be a sad day for the visual satellite enthusiast.
