SO, Did you give up your license or are you just a hot, steaming pile of equine excrement?

It looks like my secret plan to destroy ham radio has worked.  Now that the "real" hams have all fled I have the bands to myself.  I never would have been able to achieve this glorious destruction of an entire hobby without the dropping of the Code requirement.  I had all these evil plans, to import poor quality Chinese radios, to be able to say "10-4 good buddy" into an overmodulated transmitter, to be able to spread communism and UHT milk to America, but I was foiled for years by the impenetrable wall that was Code. 

Now my reign has truly begun.

Bow mortals, bow before the king of the riff-raff, the No Code Extra.

your plan may not have been as fool-proof as you think.  maybe you should have made outlawed code(?) 
CW is alive and well and populated with a nice mix of old timers *and* "no-code" amateurs, and there's almost no foul language nor political bashing of "those" people* ... 
heck, there isnt even a lot of healthcare talk on CW  Wink  73 ..

* "those" people meaning whatever group a given ham may like to subdivide our species into and then project onto said group all of our not-so-great qualities...

I can't comment on the second option, but the ULS indicates that W8ASI is still an active license. Furthermore, it has no applications pending (as of this moment), either for cancellation or any other purpose.
