[A Shame of Taiwan Amateur Radio]

The following DMR user IDs are being blocked by an anonymous team
which claimed to be authorized for DMR ID approval for Taiwan since 2017
without any explicit reason.

4661065: BV3UB
4661033: BV5OO
4661156: BM3IMT

We restored them back here in XLX886 for the following reasons:

1. These IDs were applied from DMR-Marc through appropriate process and approved.
2. These OMs have tried very hard to get their own IDs back with official process through emails,
   but were rejected due to various reasons, such as they don't have a device license of DMR radio...etc.
   which is ridiculous, since we don't find any such policy from DMR-Marc.
3. The team is actually an UNKNOWN group, no one knows who they are, and they refuse to provide their identity while users tried to apply for DMR IDs.
   We checked with CTARL and ART which are both popular and famous Amateur Radio group in Taiwan.
   None of them are responsible or authorized by DMR-Marc for DMR ID allocation/application.
4. The current DMR ID application process are obscure and not transparent.
   The UNKNOWN team will ask for personal information including photo ID, personal mobile phone number, even residential address without any NDA.
   In such situation, we believe that anyone will have large concerns in sharing personal information with an unidentified group or stranger.
5. We strongly recommend DMR-Marc to reconsider if they should keep delegating the authority of DMR ID application
   to the "claimed to be authorized" DMR ID Taiwan management team. Since there are a lot of users who have concerns 
   in sharing personal information with such anonymous/suspicious group along with the DMR ID application.
