The time period examined in the contesting.com article covers a period when 
the world-wide use of the Internet and email was rapidly increasing and 
electronic log submission was become more pervasive.

It is possible that a large percentage of the increase in log submissions 
maybe due to the ease of using email instead of snail mail to submit logs 
while the actual number of participants has not increased as much or perhaps 
even declined?
