   If my experience is anything like the OP's, I'm not surprised.  I 
tend not to sign with my callsign, since I'm on dozens of lists, only a 
few of which are amateur-radio related.  Whenever I forget, it's 
practically guaranteed that *someone* will email me a belligerent note 
along the lines of "Hey good buddy... you can't transmit/use APRS/etc. 
without a license", and demanding my callsign.  Happens almost every 
time.  I even had one piece of work who insisted that it was against FCC 
regulations to post notes on amateur radio lists without properly 
identifying myself.  I tell ya, the world is full of them...
