I'm the last guy to say everyone should be a one way IGate, but I'm the first to be sure people have the option to do it if it is right for them. But this guy would not have sent an APRS message regardless, he had far too much to correct, what with my very flawed APRS use. It was a long and critical email.

I'm not that generous. One guy like this can turn off more than a couple new APRS users. I think enthusiasm that causes damage IS flawed!

At first I actually thought this guy's email to me was an extra prod because I fell for the April Fool prank!
