What you are whining about is an accepted usage of APRS. I know it
would be easier for you as a programmer to have it be a different
way. However, APRS is a complex and often illogical system of kludges
and special cases. If you want to program for APRS, you must get used
to this. It is YOUR job as a programmer to get the result you want.
You cannot change APRS just because it would make your job easier!
You told people to look at findU to see if they were impacting the
system negatively, and yet the packets you whine about DO NOT APPEAR
on the findU PCSat page. In other words, they are not causing QRM on
findU. Yes, that took more code on my part. If they are QRMing your
code, the fault is with your code, not with the person sending the data.
Deal with it! Fix your code, or program on a system that is
completely logical. Do not start berating users that are doing
completely acceptable things!
