Its about time I read a reasonable response to this. Thanks to you Ed for
tolerating it all. Helping the enemy and not shooting the enemy can
actually make the enemy your friend.

I will point out that I am not publicizing the specific
information I have on BPL locations, for pretty obvious
reasons. Those hams that are willing and able to help should
do so through the local amateurs that are working with their
local utilities and BPL providers across the country. To do
otherwise could well be working at cross purposes with those
local efforts, and with local hams donating hundreds of
hours collectively, no one should make things any harder.
The few posts I have see from hams offering to "solve" the
BPL problem by parking 500-watt mobile stations under the
lines or engaging in some good old target practice should
alert anyone that such information should not be published

I certainly agree with that!!!

Good intentions like that could cook our goose! Honestly,
some of the more level-headed approaches are technically
embarrassing to read. All we need are the mobs of hotheads.
