Because objects are a completely different thing. Objects cannot send  
messages, weather, and most of the other types of data in the APRS  
spec. That you would suggest this would make you appear to have a very  
poor understanding of the way APRS is used in areas outside your own.

If programming is so easy, why don't YOU write a filter to remove  
tactical callsigns from your own feed. One programmer writes one  
program to solve your problem. That makes a lot more sense to me than  
having dozen of programmers and hundreds of users make changes to  
solve your problem, no?
