'Tain't No Use Complainin'

The LA Times, reporting this morning on an upcoming
trial of a man accused of producing and distributing
"criminally obscene" films, inadvertently provided a
caution for complainers:

"Federal agents raided Isaacs' Koreatown office in
January 2007. Isaacs said he was told by authorities
that the investigation was initiated after a local
person complained, and was eventually turned over to
the task force in Washington."
The report failed to report what eventually happened
to the poor complainer -- even whether or not s/he
made it home safely from Washington.
