I doubt that is going to last long. The next article--or the new hounder book--could tell the hounders to crack down elsewhere. They could make up for not beating down people in public by being even stricter with certain rules, lest they be reproved for "loose conduct".
At any rate, I would not count on its being implemented. How many hounding calls get snaked on? What about the ones to round up all the inactive ones back in January 2009? How many inactive witlesses got their hounding call? Or, how many witlesses actually got their hounding call about making sure they are wasting their Family Waste the Evening Nights properly? This kind of changes last about as long as it takes to read the washtowel study article, and are usually forgotten about by the end of that boasting session.
