I think this, being the basis of your whole argument, is the fallacy.  
S/S is forcing people to take responsibility, for sure, but carriers 
won't just let their customers leave because they don't want to sign 
calls.  It will force them to make sure they know who their customers 
are, and make it impossible for those customers to escape consequences 
if they misbehave.

We supply dialtone to a large number of businesses.  We buy DIDs from 
carriers and resell them.  It *may* be up to us to get our direct 
customers' calls signed, but at the moment we are in talks with our DID 
providers to do so on our behalf.  In the next year I have no doubt if 
there are niches to be filled in providing CA or outright 
signing-as-a-service, businesses will be jumping out of the woodwork to 
provide it.  I'm not panicking yet.

Its not just arrogant, its silly, and you have a serious branding 
problem.  If you really have "The Answer" you should work on getting 
yourself a domain name at least.  Cease the panic-inducing posts and 
come up with some reasonable fodder you could link to in your signature 
or something (like when you help with some thread), so you would at 
least contribute to the list at the same time.

Some of us may actually be interested in what you have to offer if you 
changed the way you were presenting it.  Who is going to base their 
business on some list guy with a gmail address?
