eHam just ended a "survey" that asked a related question, "Are there too
many HF contests..." It was interesting to note that the results were
balanced for quite a while - about 50/50 - for many, many days, then the
anti-contester vote shot up to a 58% to 42% lead by the end (maybe in the
wake of CQWW). And the entire time, the number of comments posted by
contesters FAR outnumbered those of the anti-contesters, and it was pretty
civil. Read into it what you wish.
