AE5PL made no such choice.  There is no differentiation of packets, per
Bob's request, made at the server for any packets being passed.  Each
sysop, however, has the ability to block packets originated from
stations that have the potential for needlessly increasing bandwidth
requirements beyond reason.  Such is the case with the GO32.

Then a different solution than the one you worked out with the GO-32
folks should have been implemented.  However, you did not consult anyone
who was going to be adversely affected (server and client sysops) until
after your changes had been implemented on the GO-32.  If you are
frustrated, be frustrated with yourself and quit casting aspersions.
