FTC - Failures to Comment?

I've just spent the last 8 hours or more listening to the FTC webcast on DRM.

I've submitted several questions, and an associate of mine, Andrew Norton of the Pirate Party International, submitted serveral too. Between us, we had 4-5 read out. Only ONE was actually read out in full, and it was not really followed up; in some instances questions ended mid-sentence when read out, leading to some unusual and awkward silences as the questions often didn't make sense.

It seems the FTC may have gotten a skewed view, because whoever was handling questions failed to communicate them accurately. When the transcripts are published (because their system failed when attempts were made to save the transcript on the webcast)  I'll show the comparison between what was asked, and what was read out.
