So what?  WRTC is a limited event with a limited number of
competing stations.  To require everyone who HOPES he might 
have a chance to win to record all 48 hours or to DENY anyone 
who might be lucky enough to surpass his own expectations 
and actually WIN the "title" because he didn't record all 
48 hours (or heaven forbid, had a recording failure) is 

Contest sponsors and log checkers can properly review the logs 
of the top stations without either recordings or making the 
logs public.  If they can't they might as well cancel the 
whole contest because they don't have any business sponsoring 
the event.

Public logs area bad thing and I'd like to see the DXCC program 
enforce their rules and revoke credit for QSOs in those logs.
