Now it is wonderful to see a Finn giving his straightforward input to a
rather diverse DX audience.
Some are nearly as straightforward. We do not have any GM on the
reflector. That is kind of a good thing, eh? Maybe this will wake up one
or two?

Some are much less straightforward.

Cultures: please enjoy meeting each other.

GL everybody,

I know why DXCC has made this rule, but I still think it's a bit 
overreacting ...

1) this rule at first assumes that DX-peditions make a lot of busted
qsos - 
in the contests we usually work around 1% busted qsos where callsign is 
incorrect or other station is not in the log. In the DX-pedition log
means 100 busted calls for every 10000 qsos. And if you are DX-ped not
the contest, you should easily get percentage much smaller -you are not
hurry and you have a band as your own.

2) of these 100 qsos DXCC now assumes that there is many cheaters among 
them, ok, how many, 1? 99?
