There is no proof of the reliability.  In fact, if you look at actual 
numbers instead of falsified web pages reporting supposed stats, one 
will see that the number of total connections to the core servers has 
not increased one iota.  The hams are being displaced by the increased 
CW connections.  But that was not the point I was trying to make 
either.  Again, the initial shutting down of the CWOP servers was done 
at your request - therefore, you need to step up and take ownership of 
that.  Basically, you got what you want and it backfired on you!

That is one request of yours I will never grant.  There was no attempt 
to hold any data hostage (which by the way, was not NOAA's to own, but 
that is also not the point - you come up with some great fiction!), nor 
have I ever felt the need to increase any power.  The true stats speak 
for themselves, and our service, which serves well over 1000 connections 
at any given time, has proven itself far beyond what any sig post can 
do.  So please, stop the false prophecies, the made-up stories, and the 
like.  Ham radio is no place for your irrelevance.
