Who cares?  My ham license doesn't specify any requirements for how I
use the internet.

We do need to operate legally, and we do need to self-police, but we
do not repeat NOT need a bunch of armchair lawyers trying to impose
their _opinion_ as if it were FCC regulation.

What if I CW beacon my call?  I think some of our neighbors across the
pond are required to operate that way.  That CW never makes it to the
APRS-IS, or even past a digi.  Is this good operating practice?  My
personal opinion is no.  Is it FCC legal?  Yes.
