Pretty big change actually...I'd estimate 40-50% reduction in traffic back to my IGate.  I guess you could say that's an argument highlighting a reason for removal.  A reduction in bandwidth...

I'll be the first to say that I don't keep my fingers on the pulse of all that is APRS, so maybe there was a discussion/meeting/vote somewhere to do that.  But I'm not seeing that info posted anywhere.  Maybe something broke and nobody realizes it??? Hi hi... Anyhow...

APRS-IS servers are not controlled unilaterally and don't have a
global block list. If a bunch of traffic disappeared from APRS-IS, the
most probable explanation is that the person who was sending that
traffic stopped sending it.
