Just a quick reply to Dick's question - very early on, Alex added a 
filter explicitly to prevent self-spotting, based on a match between the 
spotted callsign and the spotter's call, as entered in the CW Skimmer 
software.  Granted, this would be quite easy to circumvent, for a 
station that was determined to cheat in this way, but that has *always* 
been true using the traditional DX cluster system, since no 
authentication of spotters' identities is done.
