The spots are coming from his computer???? Where can I buy one of this 
machines? But this (strange) notion of a "truth machine" independent of 
people still feeding it seems to be associated with any newsfeed 
displayed by computers. Working at a news agency I regularly learn from 
our customers the credibility advantage of the computer-based feed. An 
individual reporter of a media on site has big problems with his media 
when the agency ("truth machine from the computer" but regularly not on 
site with an individual) delivers differing material compared to his 
firsthand informations. Sometimes it even happens that the media prefers 
the agency-material over its correpondent´s first hand informations - 
which is normally as bad a practice as logging a P5-qso because a 
P5-spot "came from your computer".

Until forced to believe otherwise I believe that OPERATING means also to 
find signals on the band and identify the call signs. If this is done by 
others and you use their delivered info an important part of operating 
is not done alone by you as operator claiming to be the single one doing 
all parts of operating (it´s neither bad nor unskilled but not single 
operating). Does repeating this make me now an OF automatically?
