Rich if you want to see/feel torture read the current thread here: 
They are beating up contesters mercilessly. We are the evil-doers who are 
spoiling their part of the hobby(whatever their part is, I'm not really 
sure). At least, hopefully, the discussions here might come to some logical 
conclusion that might benefit, and enhance, contesting. There were many 
opinions here from many different corners which, if we are lucky, might end 
up with a tweaking of the rules to level our playing field.
One can only hope.

Many people have cautioned me over the years not to mix religion,
politics, or sex with ham radio.  I never understood that advice since
they constitute all the things in this world that are fun, or so it
always seemed to me.  So, if you agree in particular with the advice
regarding politics, you might not want to read any further.

The endless debate about packet cheating and recording contests
constitutes torture, by any rational standard.  It's hard to imagine
that waterboarding could be worse.  I don't know if the CIA has any
videotapes of me being tortured by reading this reflector, but then
again I don't know that they don't.  They aren't likely to tell me, are
they?  Therefore, please be informed that I will continue to make fun of
the entire thing until you all stop.  You have been warned.
