For contests I care less. It obviously is a combination of operator and 
station, and the fact there is Internet between the two doesn't matter.

For DXCC and other things, I think the rules are messed up. I think the 
station should belong to or be associated with the person collecting the 
award, and everything should be within a certain reasonable distance, or 
contacts should not count. I liked DXCC and other things back before 
distance rules went away.
