So in your language the "licensed person" is the amateur using the Winlink system, not the control operator, i.e., the licensed amateur controlling a gateway - thank you for the clarification. Yes, I understand that the amateur user whitelists the non-licensed person's email which gives that person (or anyone else at that email) permission to send an email to the amateur user. I understand that in your view, the amateur user is the one controlling the communications. I understand that you seem to be frustrated that I and some others don't agree to that "obvious" notion of control and with some other views of yours. I also understand that you seem impatient with "nitpicking" in trying to be careful with definitions of the roles and responsibilities of the people involved, and carefully parsing Part 97. Well, that's up to you of course. But one must be able to carefully define the present situation vis a vis the regulations in order to document and discuss shortcomings and justify specific changes to the FCC. The audience there is mostly administrators and lawyers, not radio enthusiasts, after all.
