Default Is "zapping" or "pinging" another boat to record GPS numbers ok?

Since I have not spent the time required to figure out how to do this this on my radar, I don't have a dog in this hunt. In fact, if I have to look at one more screen while driving my boat I might just experience a brain aneurysm. However, this seems to be a point that some folks have strong opinions about.

Is "zapping" or "pinging" another boat to record the GPS numbers of their fishing spot ok?

Please note that the debate is really not whether it is legal or not, because it is clearly legal.

So what do YOU think?

I'm trying to off-load this topic from the other thread, since it seems to have a life of its own. However, the subject may have played itself out.

If someone zaps me they will get garbage numbers. Since I don't bottom fish very often, most of the time when I stop I'm just adjusting something, rigging something, or taking a leak.
