[HOT] Spam messages

I think I've validated more than 10,000 tiles I would hate to think I'd be
responsible for 10,000 spam messages.

These are meaningless and I think they should be stopped as quickly as
possible.

I apologise to any mappers that have received these as part of my
validations.

I will have to give consideration as to whether to continue to validate
whilst these are being generated as I really do not want any part of them.
