I think something was missed here. He -will- be on FINDU,
but his position will -not- be displayed on a map and
the map will instead show something like:
"This position arrived at FINDU via a path that is too long and
considered in appropriate on the APRS RF system." For
more information on the proper use of paths please see:

I think the original proposal was not a "filter" but a
witholding of the FINDU "viewing" ability from those
users that are abusing RF as a means of getting positive
feedback to them.
It is that positive feedback to the user that is so important
and what is so frustrating about transmit-only trackers
some of which could care less about the RF network as
long as their packets make it to FINDU...
Just a thought.
