is that it gave sysops in an area the ability to take
charge of their networks by TRAPS for abusive paths.
BUT the degree of trap "N" is shown in all beacons

to do but the network should know better and trap me down to a single hop
(or whatever they do). As a subscriber to this email list I should know
better than use a 3 hop count in downtown LA but not everybody subscribes to
this email list. As a mobile sender I shouldn't have to carry a Digi
Directory to find out what settings I should use in each area of the
