"Yes, I want to win," he said, "but I want to win knowing that I have 
followed the rules, my rules. If I do not, there is no pleasure in winning, 
simply a trophy which I do not feel I deserve. You understand?"

It is absolutely beyond my comprehension why people feel it so important to 
win something
that they insist on cheating/breaking the rules.  WHY??????????????    For 
goodness sake
does it make one feel they've accomplished something????   But I guess we 
can ask the
same question of criminals and people in other sports not just amateur 
radio.  I for one
am frankly sick of all the discussion in this regard - it won't be stopped 
regardless of what
is done.  Those who wish to cheat will find a way - they'll spend much time 
and effort trying
to figure out how to do it - again, like criminals - instead of exerting the 
same amount of energy
improving their skills so that they can possibly compete and win legally. 
Let's go on to
some other topic PLEASE.
