[aprssig] SatReporter Hacked once Again

Personally I can deal with the entry level or easily googled answers.
Generally it is a 5 second reply from one list member, and the remainder
can just ignore it however they see fit. Sometimes those types of questions
even trigger others to start new projects, come up with new ideas, or
improve an existing widget. Sure it's a waste of time and bandwidth, and is
doing someone else's work for them, but if my biggest problem of the day is
skipping over a pointless email from a hobby list, I'll take it. Can't
argue with Steve's history, though.

What really gets me is that Andrew apparently has some technical skill and
education, although to what level has never been clearly defined. Yet, his
"questions" are extremely hard to follow. Half the time I'm left trying to
figure out if he even had a question, or what he is asking. And that's
usually after wading through poor grammar and spelling that make YouTube
commenters look like scholars.
