Not on your life! My log is my log - I make it available to the
contest sponsor for checking as a condition of entry but it is NOT
public and should never be made public. There is no reason for it
to be made public.
The contest sponsor/contest committee has every right to check it
for accuracy and operation according to the rules but there is no
need for them to open MY LOG to public inspection. In fact, as
the ARRL DXCC rules are currently written, making that log public
could subject me to disqualification from DXCC.
There are other approaches that the contest committees can and
should take but those are a matter for their internal policies.
