Nobody is saying you can't use packet.  I use it in almost every contest I
enter.  I mark my log submission as S/O with packet.  That way the contest
sponsor (that poor soul who has to tabulate and check all the logs) can put
me down as S/A if that is the rule of that particular contest, or whatever.
 I don't have that big of an ego to really care what class of entry I'm put

I use packet because it adds FUN to the contest.  Isn't that what this is all
about anyway?  Here in northern CA, we have quite a lot of banter on the net
as well as just good spots. Some of those one liners can really put a smile
back on your face after sitting and begging for hours.
