[aprssig] TH2THAPR-1 Server keeps sending messages?

I did a packet list on TH2THAPR-1 on both findU and jFindu with zero results.  Are the "messages" lines starting with # in your TCP display or are they actual APRS messages?  If the former, those are standard keep-alives.  If the latter, it sounds like either there is a non-javAPRSSrvr server in the Tier 2 rotate list or someone in the Tier 2 rotate list has made a mistake in their configuration.  The default for javAPRSSrvr is to block all of those types of messages.  They are generated by non-javAPRSSrvr software and were considered a nicety in the beginning of APRS-IS but became a major nuisance with the large number connections occurring on the net.  APRServe, aprsD, and AHub all generate these broadcast messages.
