It used to be a DX contest, now it's a rate contest. All of them are rate 

Of course it's fun to run a pileup. But it's also fun to tune around and find 
somebody really far away and spend some time trying to work him. The rules for 
ARRL and CQ DX contests reward working a new multiplier, maybe far away, but 
not for working a second station in the same multiplier. What's wrong with a 
small reward for working another far away station in the same multiplier? 

All we are saying, is give distance a chance.
