Single op's w/o packet?

I have a question.   During the 10m contest & CW SS, I was posted in the 
"multi-single" category because I ran with packet. problem.

However, I am all the "serious" single ops REALLY run without
packet, or am I just the only one that will admit it?

Yes, contesting is an "honor system" thing...  but I find it incredulous 
that all the single ops DON'T use that packet screen.  Many don't, to be 
sure, but it still makes me wonder.

Has the two-rig single op station eliminated the need for packet?

There really isn't anything I can do to help.  What I would suggest is
the following:

o Subscribe to the list from Compu$erve by sending a message to
  cq-contest-request at that says 

  This will subscrbe the Compu$erve id to the list, but not deliver any 
  mail to it

o Continue reading CQ-Contest from the Ericsson account, and post messages
  only from the Compu$erve account

An alternative at the sysadmin/policy making level (we do this at TGV) is 
to have *all* hosts identify themselves with the same host name in the 
From: header.  Although the machines all have various host names, like 
Cone-of-Silence.TGV.COM, Foghorn.TGV.COM, and Leghorn.TGV.COM, all the 
mail looks as though it originates from TGV.COM, and actual host called
TGV.COM is set up to route incoming mail to the appropriate places.

Good luck.
