It really sucks that someone is ripping you off by selling fake
registration codes.  Really.

But it wasn't "the contesting community" who did it.  It was an individual
jerk.  A person who is a member of this reflector is alleged to have
planted contraband on some commercial airliners recently.  Would you blame
that on "the contesting community" also?
