To be honest with you, I can see as much room for contesting abuse in
self-recording as those who don't self record but snipe packet spots. Since
everyone will now be required to self record, expect those with less than
stellar ethics standards to start now having nearly perfect UBN reports.
They will now have a full replay of they contest, and will now replay their
audio files 3 or 4 times to ensure every call was copied correctly.
