It is going to do no such thing. Just like you are supposed to have 200 jumps to jump a camera and we all that NEVER happens before 200 right?

There is a difference between a "requirement" (BSR) and a "recommendation." (cameras @200 jumps are a recommendation, not a requirement).
*Generally,* skydivers follow BSR's.

Anything that the USPA does will only be as powerful as the DZO's allow. No more, no less.

Low pulls were quite common even with a BSR. The only thing that stopped them were slower opening canopies and AAD's.

And most DZO's don't allow their patrons to abuse the BSR's. Most DZO's recognize it's in the interest of their dropzone to promote safe standards (which is what the BSR's do, in addition to keeping the FAA off our backs).

If that we're true, the wing suit problem could have been easily fixed by a BSR.

Which wingsuit problem (there are several)? There can (and should) be consequences for violating a BSR.

That is a question better left to those that stand to profit from this exercise. The people who want the USPA to sanction them to provide training to others.

Where in the SIM do you see punishments listed?

Not in the SIM; in the USPA Governance Manual.
