Tom, I think it is unfair to denouce hams as whiners when they discuss 
cheating. Like many other small pistols I neither have won anything nor 
do I expect to win a contest with my setup. But I am nevertheless very 
interested in a fight against cheating (packet being only the more 
intensively discussed item besides i.e. power-cheating or more operators 
for a SO-entry). As with the most writing here it is not about trying to 
get easy personal wins. But at least even with our little share we want 
to be part of a competition as honest and fair as possible. Likewise the 
majority of hobby-athletes in real sports expect and prefer to 
participate in activities oldfashioned and rules-regulated as they are - 
for being different to sport-travesties like wrestling-shows. The runner 
on rank 83 expects that a top-athlete gets penalized for taking a short 
cut - not for his own better ranking but because it is the name of the 
fair game.
Best 73, Chris
