Dear Airlines, Give Me a Little Legroom, For The Love Of God

Can we as a group of collective travelers rise and put a stop to the ever-shortening leg room on our flights? In the meantime, please stop the seats from reclining.
Remember when the person in front of you could recline their seat and it wouldn't jam into your legs? I know there was a time like that, just like there was also a time when any seat with any inch of extra leg room didn't cost an extra $50 on a flight.
On a discount airline (which I will never, ever fly), I could maybe see how jamming as many people as possible into a plane could make sense.
Now when my husband and I travel, I just dread the moment the person in front of us tilts their seat. We're both tall people - I'm 5'8" and he's 6'4" - and we just sit there, crammed like sardines in a tin can, for however many hours the flight is.
But now when I book, I'm starting to pay attention to which airlines have the most legroom. If it's less than 32 inches, I'm not booking your airline.
There's so little room when someone reclines their seat now that I can barely open a laptop.
