Joe -- While I appreciate (but don't necessarily understand) your position, but 
am compelled to ask the following question:

If a contest sponsor decides to make all logs submitted for their contests 
available to the public, will you not participate in their contests? Will you 
participate but not submit a log?  

It seems to me that the owner of the contest owns the logs and other items 
(soapbox comments, photos, etc.) submitted to them.
