Along with Steve, I offer my apologies to everyone on the SIG.  
Unfortunately, Steve is also trying to rewrite history and twist a 
situation around with the sole purpose of I really don't know what at 
this point!  But my original points remain.  Tier 2 has never dropped 
support for any APRS connections.  Tier 2 and it's sysops remain 
available to help any who are in need of assistance, regardless of what 
server you are connected too.  Additionally, for years, I have offered 
to have a personal conversation with Steve to figure out what the guy 
has against me, but he refuses.  My point in the original post was not 
to start a war or personal attacks, but to illustrate the falsities that 
have been propagating throughout the public APRS-IS for months.

Well, that certainly tells us a lot about your character then.  You are 
unwilling to help APRS users if they are not playing by your rules.  
That was one of the main reasons I made the original post a few days 
ago.  I think that is rediculous.

I have already explained this, to you privately and also publicly on 
this SIG.  Perhaps a bad choice of words on my part (I have been known 
to do that in the past as well).  The intention of the message was to 
state that the CWOP servers were being turned off at your request, and 
we would no longer advertise those servers as the sole recommended 
connection point for CWOP stations.  At no time did we ever drop our 
support of the CWOP program or it's mission.  I need not explain this 
again.  A private phone call with the said NOAA personnel a few days 
after this message was sent cleared up the confusion and all has been 
well with that.  You are unable to let it go, however.

Call me!  Or give me your number and I'll spend the dime!  Your 
continued blasphemy is incredible and something that is probably easily
