That is a good case for black listing the fellow. Perhaps he'll figure out that his tracker has been ignored and he could set better parameters for it to beacon with. Some kids are a little thick in the head and figure we're being too picky without realizing how frustrating it is for hams that are actually moving. A second email could be of use. Nice works well--not that I AM nice, but I hear it works. :)
