Perfect answer.

To me, it's pretty simple - everybody wants the rules to be specialized for them. Sort of like tailoring an RFP to a certain set of criteria that you know only one company
can adhere to.

It's my opinion that if this is a major, life defining crisis issue for you, you need help. It's supposed to be fun folks. The contest sponsors know what they are doing - Randy and his crew should be nominated for sainthood for doing what they do in the face of constant critiquing of rules, categories, cheating - whatever. If they see something that they believe
needs fixing, they'll fix it. If not, then not.

For my part - I'm going to keep on keeping on doing my Luddite thing and having
fun.  Life is too short to be arguing about radio contesting.
