OK, maybe you missed the news. IT IS NOT QRM. Everything that is  
transmitted on a local RF network belongs on the APRS Internet System  
(with the sole exception of third party packets, which are  
retransmitted packets which have already appeared on the APRS IS). I  
designed it that way, it has worked well for well over a decade, and  
it will not change. Period.

If there is something on the APRS IS which is causing you problems, it  
is up to you to develop a solution to filter the data. You cannot  
dictate what can and cannot appear on the APRS IS. Period.
