My apologies for not being clear...thought I was...
Anyhow I don't see this as a "nefarious scheme". I see it as a change...an apparently I'm the only one who's noticed so far.
I'm just looking for a simpler way to view the info rather than build a long filter...
I now know who the author is and he's on Googlegroups and I'll post a message there.
Thanks for your comments!

Yes, I see
your point now and that's distinctly different from your first message and has a lot more clues. Instead of some nefarious scheme to rid APRS-IS feeds of DStar data it appears that the parser is simply behaving differently. The DStar stations technically have nonstandard SSID's (since they're not numbers). If the parser became strict about parsing valid SSIDs (meaning only an SSID of -1 through -15 or blank which would only work in over-the-air APRS packets) then it's going to kill off all sorts of stations like WinLink (som of which end in -WL), the DSTar repeaters (A-D), and others. Seems like more of an accident than anything planned.
