wow, what an attitude, unbelievable.

and this "firend" who does not live that far away happens to live so close 
that knows exactly what states are still missing. I guess he is trying to be 
always on the same frequency as LMR with his receiver and he is running 
identical log and entering stations to see what mults are still missing and 
diligently enters spots time after time with that info. He also makes it a 
habit to enter spots under LMR callsing for other stations on other 
frequencies but to S&P he uses another radio - he is a SO2R guy - because he 
always has to have 1st radio exactly on LMR frequency to be able to 
replicate the log.

What a great way for him to spend a weekend and what a nuisence he is by 
creating all this mess and casting shadow of cheating to a completely 
innocent man!

I truely wish you strength and success in "fixing this" and shutting this 
troublesome guy down.

And I completely agree that in a truelly democratic country everybody should 
be allowed to selfspot and all contests should have no rules at all not to 
limit the freedom and basic human rights! Actually next time I recommend you 
take a callbook and list 10 000 stations from there into your log as I am 
not sure there are any restrictions on that and most of the guys are doing 
this anyway. I hope the Contest Committee would not go as pathetic or 
ridiculous to start nit picking about that.
