In todays society of competing interest for the electromagnetic spectrum, it seems to me to be only in the best interest of each one of us to support our national organization to maintain our access to RF.

I'm a life ARRL member, but have never used the ARRL email forwarder 
since the ARRL seems to do nothing to secure their servers against

relays on their server for years, and seen to do no spam filtering at 
all on traffic arriving at their server.
