Clap, clap, clarp.

It´s time to make our network secure, DXCluster included!
Or more and more abuses will come alive making the DXCluster less and
less useful.

> I have been inactive since my last visit to 6Y1V in late 2009 for the
> CQWW CW contest. I have not turned on a radio or connected to a cluster

> Kong, Macau, and a few other sweet spots for radio.
> In my opinion, this issue with people posting to the cluster using my

> current implementation and operation of DX Clusters is unsecure and is
> irresponsible to the amateur community.
> It is quite evident that an "open" system that does not require
> registration and logins is completely ineffective at preventing abuse.
> Until such time as the Amateur Radio community decides that they will no
> longer tolerate such abuse and refuse to participate in using an
> unsecured system that allows such blatant abuses to continue, the
> problem will likely continue endlessly.
> It doesn't have to be this way. Isn't it time for a change?
> I hope to get back into radio soon, until then, happy DX'ing and
> contesting.
