It is completely unnecessary for CQ or any contest sponsor to 
release logs for every Tom, Dick and database compiler.  There 
are plenty of tools if they get off their fat, lazy, old asses 
and make their own analysis of log submissions. 

The ARRL DXCC program is the oldest and most widely followed 
awards program in amateur radio.  For a bunch of contest sponsors 
to subvert the DXCC program because they do not what is necessary 
to police their own contest is unacceptable.  There is no excuse 
for them to release logs and expect someone else to find and 
prove any alleged cheating.   
It's time for contest expert and ARRL New England Director, 
K1KI to call for the DXCC Desk to enforce the rules and call 
on CQ to stop making CQWW participants violate the DXCC Rules.
