  I just received a email froma friend who was reading  the yes pitiful self 
spotting reports, spending the time to look and report these stations seems 
just as pathetic or  ridiculous as the self spotting  it self in my view.
  in any case heres part the email I sent   to my friend  after for the first  
time hearing of this taddle tailing :
      "Hey Chris--
  You are getting hammered on CQ-CONTEST for self-spotting.
  HI ----,

  I guess so, Yikes, This has never been brought to my attention before.
  I do have a local ham friend that has put spots for me before he doesnt live 
that far away.
  But any case only strange thing is the IP number thats listed does not seem 
to be  mine at all,  also A few those contest I operated portable with my 
laptop from a totaly diffrent location and connection then my home computer.
  In any case I didnt know we had guys with nothing better to do then go 
sniffing  for soemone putting self spots!
  Apparently theres  a watch dog for everything these days.
  I am not sure of all the restrictions there is on self or a friend spotting,
   but with guys nit picking and nothing better to do then snif and find some 
thing to gripe  about  its no wonder why this country is becoming more and   
more  Socialistic  one then democratic one! but,  I guess this should  come as 
no surprise.
  None the less thanks for the info and will try to fix it.

  PS: I notice alot of stations ask the statsions they work to spot them over 
and over I guess that really ought  to be considered self spotting  as well, 
   So apparentaly  not your self , not a friend, or even some one you work 
should spot you!? In that case why allow spotting at all!!??  maybe that would 
make the the socialistic , "nothing better to do doers",  P&Mers happy?!
