The mandatory thing is a problem for me. 15 or so years ago, I was one of the poor suckers singled out for additional information. This involved meeting in person and then over the phone for several months of follow-up, and believe me, it's mandatory.

When I finally became irritated (after about the third month) and refused to keep participating, I was threatened with being reported (can't remember to whom), fined, or possibly given jail time. I eventually complied and just lied or answered that I didn't know, and was generally completely immature about it.

I don't care how useful the information is, I don't care who needs this information, I don't care how important this information is, I 100% support this mandatory long form being eliminated. No one should be threatened with jail time for refusing to answer these questions.
