If you hardcode limits then you make it unusable for fast updating 
telemetric units on a seperate qrg.
Blaming abuse by users on opentracker is like blaming Mirc for alowing 
users to write war scripts for irc.

It´s the same discusion as that of igate operators gating half the world 
to RF, you can´t blame that on the software too.

take it up with the users doing the abuse not the writer of the tool 
they use to do the abuse with.
