I can just hear the swarm now as they hit F4 four or
five times as everyone picks the spot for the new rare

If I wanted to play computer games, I'd go back to
DOOM, much better graphics even for an "ancient" game.
Heck I can play it when I want, no band conditions to
worry about and it's a heck of a lot cheaper... That's
just me, and probably at least a couple others...

I don't think any major contests are proposing such a
change, so currently it's a moot point. The
categories, as they stand now, offer the best to all

Frankly, I'm saddened that folks are willing to give
up so much just because a very few haven't the honor
or dignity to abide by basic rules.

Sorry about the diatribe, but that's how I see it.

Best wishes for the Holidays,
