Everyone of course has the right to  make their own choice, but for a  
ham that values the data they send to the APRS IS, it would make more  
sense to send it directly to the core, where the sysops demonstrate  
the highest principles of amateur radio, service and and  
professionalism. Core sysops have never cut off service because they  
got mad.

The core now has 4 fully linked core servers, and two hot standbys in  
case Tier 2 gets mad again and decides to cut off the amateur users  
the way they cut off Citizen Weather users on Saturday. If that day  
comes, the core will be able to take the full load.

Service and Professionalism...
