Not sure what you are saying here, but Im under no illusions that a listening squawk gives you less than a basic service, so therefore nothing, hence I just cant see the point of it, though Im aware others like the idea.

This is daft if pilots really think this way. The last time I was in the UK I was indeed asked by Farnborough if I was aware of airspace, and no, I wasnt annoyed but happy someone was looking out for me even though I run SD. No different to the last time I was on a French FIS in class G and was asked if I could possibly decend 500ft (as there was commercial traffic on approach) and was happy to comply, its a two way street.
