I get very afraid when people use the phrase "Something needs to be done", to justify doing "something".
A particular action can help, hurt or be indifferent. But they are all "something". Now, why the heck would you want to do *anything*, if you didn't have a reasonable idea that it was going to help?
Heck, just based on the numbers, you only have a 1 out of 3 chance of any random action helping. Considering there is a cost associated with that action, the odds are even worse.
Don't just do something, stand there!
