Wouldn't alerting the general media in Germany, or say, The New York
Times, The Independent, The Guardian, Le Monde, etc., be more helpful

SAN surely knows people at the BBC. And Stockhausen's the honorary

Rich?

It isn't a blight on anyone's reputation if no one knows. Their
reputation is relatively safe.
