Blacklist pirates option?

Is there any way to block pirates from having their sports published? There’s a lot of non existent calls that are spotted from JW, e.g JW1SLI.

If it’s always the same callsigns, then you could avoid getting notifications for them by adding a “not Callsign” condition with a list of the problematic callsigns. If it’s rather the RBN mis-decoding callsigns, then the solution would be to exclude spots from the RBN using a “Source” condition.

I am Norwegian, and have access to the list of issued Norwegian callsigns ( it’s public information), including the JW-calls. Personally I’m not fooled by people pirating JW calls. I was more thinking in the line of warning other hams about those fake callsigns.
