Thanks Ron for the work on this. We are just going over your data and  
we talking about a wish item for Marco, after the bugs are worked out  
of course.

The ability to drop a particular packet. If we could ignore W3-1,  
W4-2 and W4-1 we could really clean up our network. The biggest  
problem for us on the east coast is we can be in 2-3 hop range of 3-5  
metro areas. People are always saying, "We're not in a Metro area, so  
it shouldn't be that bad". True, it's not traffic that originates  
here it's the traffic that terminates here that causes the problem.  
Although I'm sure our neighbors to the South and West appreciate us  
cutting off 4-2 and 3-2 etc, it still transmits the same amount of  
packets in our area. The dupe detection for WIDEn-n was working fine  
even back at 1.8b6 so this really changes nothing for us locally, yes  
it's best for the community at large but we're still stuck with  
getting everybody's trash, and we have to digi it one more time.
