"Discriminating against..."
So we have a victim and an oppressor here, eh?

FWIW, non-members can earn and receive certificates (and DX can earn 
certificates of participation) without cost or obligation.  I think 
this is taking advantage of the paying members - so who's the victim, 

Radio Contesting in the US is controversial.  From what I've seen over 
the years, this is often not the case overseas.  National organizations 
in various countries have a much more enthusiastic (for contesting) 
constituency.  I've seen the magazines - contesting is all over the 
place!  The ARRL Contest branch, on the other hand, has a hard sell 
spending more dollars on contesting than the contesting community 
spends on the ARRL.
