Accentuate the Positive
I see that the Dutch Innovation Platform's Dutch language website is inviting feedback for what the government group should do in the next 18 months of its existance. They have come up with a scenario of the year 2027 and invite comments. The problem is that they are doing this rather like a schoolmaster would organise a test at school. Compare this to Ofcom in the UK, or even the European Union who have announced a public consultation on communications policy. If you react to the EU, you at least know your feedback will be documentated and accessible at a later stage. With the Innovation Platform, you have no proof of participation and they can easily bin any reactions they don't like. But I will take the risk and send something in.
