Good for you, George.  You are entitled to do whatever you want.  Packet 
during SS is a bottomless pit of lazy operators, and it starts merely hours 
into the contest.  I've witnessed the harassment (*) given to people who 
put out spots without the sections in them.  I don't understand why it's so 
darned important.  IMHO, getting a clean sweep has been totally minimized 
by the use of packet.  Thank heavens that the ARRL finally outlawed using 
DX packet clusters to work QSOs in Field Day a few years back.
