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...
