Re: Re: Using Professional Titles on Amsat-bb

I totally agree Jon.  Usually I delete this type of email but this was too
ridiculous to ignore.

Would it be so horrible that someone might actually look at the bottom of
the email, see a title, job description, etc and find out that another ham
spends most of his day doing the same thing that I do?  Maybe even get on
the air and speak to this ham and exchange ideas, etc?  Unless someone is
paying for their email by the character I fail to see any harm done.


Ttile deleted for those who may be sensitive to this issue
