Disagree.  Just get all digis around you to trap 4-4,5-5,6-6
and everyone wins.  Everyone else will be trapping 55-66-77
so they wont get to you.  Yes, it will take a little while, but when
all digis are trapping the big ones, the abusers will quickly
learn that anything above about 44 will be trapped and so they
will stop using it because it gets them nowhere..

Well, when we get all the users trapped down to smaller N's
I think you might want to switch back to allow travelers
with fixd trackers to pass though...

>I think the next best thing is to eliminate the WIDE and TRACE.

Yes, agree completely.  Cutting off WIDE and encouraging
people to use the much more efficient n-N algorithms is a
real winner...

Then set your digis to trap at 33,44 and 55 since we will
be trying to get all digis in the USA to trap 55,66 and 77

But again, I'm not  pushing  Once we get all the areas
cut back, then you can re-open to WIDEn-N later...
