Pre-publication checking

A sensible idea. Post a check-in list of contest logs by call letters, date
received and claimed score. This last part would certainly allow the contest
administrators to do a check prior to publication for discrepancies. If these
lists were maintained daily, you would be able to check for your logs receipt
and respond accordingly if it failed to show up after, say, two weeks.  This
would certainly be a good reason to NOT wait until the last minute to send
your logs in.

Obviously a Democrat! Rich - if they put in an 800 number who do you 
think pays for it? The masses that don't use it. 
Here's one vote against.

The W1AW bulletin said in part:

" Rocks which cannot sustain human habitation shall not be
considered for DXCC country status."

This would seem to include Peter I and Heard Island among others.  As far as
I know, no humans have ever "lived" there.  "Vacationing" for a few days
doesn't seem to quite fit the definition, does it?
