No, they'd just be proud that they got gated 250 times with that  
really powerful VHF signal.  ;)

I see a few people doing things like:

WIDE3-3,WIDE3-3,WIDE3-3 as paths.  Clearly some digi somewhere is  
trapping WIDE4+...

One of these is a weather station!!!  Of all things I care about, the  
weather 500 miles away is not one of them!

I don't see that type of behavior changing regarding IGates with  
education, unfortunately.

That said, I do think it would give considerate operators an idea of  
their local network.
