OK, so what if I go to the Caribbean, don't ask anyone to 
spot me, don't have any "understanding", but some well-
meaning fellow club members take it upon themselves to spot 
me every five minutes.

I have absolutely no knowledge of what's going on, yet you 
say I'm violating rules?  

The spotting network isn't going away, so the only way 
around this would be to eliminate club competition...and 
that still wouldn't do it, because friends would still spot 
their friends.  

The whole packet/intenet spotting deal is just accumlated 
noise...get used to it.
