If I stopped dealing with every company that had an employee that had ticked me off at some time, I would be on my own with no source of food,water, entertainment and transportation.  Somebody screwed up, give them a break.  The second time they pissed me off would be a different matter.
I understand your sentiment and you are right.  I'm just a bit weary of sending data and then being chastised for minor issues.  Its just easier this way in this particular situation.

Including PWSweather.com?  I hope not.   :-(

We have never had an attitude like you describe.  We're here to serve personal weather stations and always have been.
No, you have always been very appreciative and reciprocal with data sharing.  I appreciate your business model in that regard.  Thanks.

While I'm unhappy at their behavior, I'm not asking for a boycott or anything.  However, I appreciate the support.

Boycott or no boycott, they aren't getting my data any longer. I sure as heck wouldn't like to be treated that way, and don't like it when friends are either. And, a "Sorry but" reply just doesn't cut it in my book.

I've got your back my friend.  =D>

Since I use WD to send my data to them I just turned off the switch in the AWEKAS WD control panel.

Again, I'm not asking anyone to stop sending their data to AWEKAS.  Sharing your information with any other site is a personal decision and should be made based on your needs, experiences and relationship with each site individually.  It was just time for me to stop being so generous and whittle down my sharing to a fewer number of relevant locations.

Rick,
  I understand what you are saying. I agree that we shouldn't stop sending data to other organizations but like you said, how many sites is too much and when something like this is done to a fellow enthusiast then a message must be sent. BTW, what services are they offering me and everyone else? I send free data for what?

I just changed the file their system looks for to something else.  ;)

One thing I could not find on their system is a place to remove your account.  ](*,)

Yes, I too did not find anywhere on how to remove the account. Well a lockout will be sufficient enough...

Hey Andrew.

Forgot all about this thread. Had the chance to try the other Smarties, when a friend went to London and brought back a bunch of different candies. I saw those in the batch and just had to give them a try. Yeah, just like M&M's, except not as good IMHO. Good though.

Bob,
I prefer M&M's also, but Smarties will do in a pinch.
