    Should a point add any seenbys at all??

    I have been adding the seenby of my uplink only, but I think this is wrong because when I view the message on my uplink (which uses hpt) I am seeing
    it's node address twice.

    I wouldnt have thought so.

    By definition a SEEN-BY is added by a node listing all the nodes it sends a message to. Points only "send" to their boss, that also has the same address (bar the point).

    That said, if it did, it shouldnt matter - as the boss wouldnt add itself to any message it receives from an uplink hub, as the uplink already added it when it packed a message to it.
