A legitimate argument against using a microphone at the Western Wall

A writer to the Jerusalem Post has a problem with a microphone's use:
Regarding “Verbal abuse, loudspeaker taint WoW’s Kotel service” (October 6), Rabbi of the Western Wall Shmuel Rabinowitz issued a letter last week calling on ultra-Orthodox leaders to avoid organized protests at the site for Friday’s prayer service marking Rosh Hodesh. I am quite confused as to what the rabbi considers “organized protests.”

I was at the Western Wall on Friday, trying to pray. My prayers were loudly disrupted by someone on the men’s side using a microphone loudly. Is this not considered a protest? Is this not considered a disruption of the sanctity of this holy place? I also heard whistles. This, too, I would consider some kind of protest.

I go to the Western Wall to pray. I bring my own Siddur and want to pray with honor and respect. Please suggest to the rabbi of the Western Wall that if he has any influence on the man who was using the microphone, tell him to stop!
So when was it ever just a problem with women's singing at the Wall? Even men resorting to loud machinery can cause a very unpleasant ruckus. Once more, I question the dedication of Rabinowitz to Judaism.
