Thank you for pointing this out, Prasad. Some of today's most highly respected 
contesters were DQ'd when they were first learning the ropes. Instead of being 
turned off by this "public shaming", and giving up on contesting, they took it 
as a learning experience and built their skills and reputation over the 
subsequent years.
