I think open logs are great.  I have only looked at a few.  I do not
see how publishing the logs assumes that everyone or anyone is
cheating. If anything it opens up the entire log checking process a
bit more - by allowing anyone to look at the logs and even do their
own log checking if they desire.

I rarely look at anyones logs but I will willing share my logs with
anyone.  I only wish the ARRL would follow CQ's lead with open logs.

If anyone wants to see my sweepstakes logs - just ask.  Or any
recordings I have made of a contest - even more useful and interesting
