>>...he is just using the available resources. 

I too thought the amateur digital radio equipment on ISS are resources we all can use.  I'm sure all of us would not knowingly hog it up for our own benifit....I mean, what's the point, right?  I agree with Bob in that using the BBS is so resource intensive.  With digi (non BBS) you get immediate responses and does not clog up traffic. I've used the ISS digi on occasion and it's satisfying to receive a short message back right away.  I thought it was very similar to a FM voice contact, but chat room style!   Have a great day folks!
