And they love to post crap using W2IRT identity along with several others.
I can't speak for W2IRT, but I would find it far more disturbing to see my call pirated on the air for some of the jamming activities. And, in that regard, they do seem to have it in for W2IRT for some reason. I've heard his call pirated on the air doing crap and I know it can't be him.
You and your buddies are still not making a strong case.
Time passes and spots accumulate. We've had a surfeit of major DXpeditions this year, a bit more than normal. But, the behavior you talks about lasts for a day or two, per DXpedition. Truth is, things settle down. And, sheer time means a lot of dull, ordinary spots that offend no one anywhere.
So, we see maybe eight days a year where these terrible posts happen in any profusion. But, I'll bet even on a day like that, they are under five per cent of all spots and probably under one per cent. Even on those days. Yes, the majors get spotted to death, and it attracts the silly, but there is still a lot else going on and it gets spotted, normally. Even a lot of the spots for the majors. So, numerically, the case is weak even on the worst days. And there are few enough of those in a year.
And nobody has convincingly answered why it isn't enough to have an option to simply remove the comments altogether. That's a lot easier to implement, does not
diminish spotting and does not
inhibit new DXers from joining the network and catching the "disease" of DXing thereby. Oh, yeah, I bet you guys forgot all about that with all your clubby little proposals. Or, maybe it's a feature?
If you're worried about pirated calls, map them to a country or a DX zone. Nobody really cares about the individual identities of the spotters. Truth is, I don't pay attention. I got software that divides it into "North American" and "everywhere else" so I can assess the likely utility of the spot. And yes, I know some of them are fibs. So what. It actually works well. That's because the majority, the vast majority of spots are not done by miscreants. Vast enough that ignoring the problem entirely has not notably impacted my DXing.
It seems to me you guys are working overtime to be offended and working double overtime to invent problems that most of us just don't see in any significance.
