[aprssig] Is the APRS Spec for APRS Data Type Identifier just randomly ignored? Should it be?

Anyway, back to my original question/intent... Should we launch an effort to improve the state of things. I could run a perl script once a week/month/etc that would send mail to this mailing list with a list of stations that were sending "illegal" packets on a regular basis. Perhap locals could then try to contact these folks.

In reality, I suspect this is a lost cause. I'm just trying to get a straw poll on the idea from the group.
