    Hester Pierce has been the lone voice of reason within the SEC for a while now. You can find more of her statements posted on the SEC website:

    Her statement from Jan 10 is pretty scathing.

    Really?

    I wasn't impressed with her interview, she talked and said much of nothing. Not to mention she seems to be advocating for regulation. Am I missing something?

    Read the Jan 10 statement at the link.

    She was very diplomatic in that interview. But if you are familiar with her history, you will grok what she is really saying.

    She's diplomatic because she has to work with her colleagues. But she is fighting for a sane/honest approach

    She was (at least post facto) critical of the SEC's persecution of Jeremy Kauffman's LBRY, for whatever one thinks that might be worth:
