I just received a post card today, postmarked in Cleveland, OH, telling me 
that I was a lid for posting those spots without sections noted.  This card 
was apparently pre printed for sending large quantities to many "lids", and 
further annotated by hand telling me again that posting spots without 
sections makes no sense.  Of course, the card was unsigned, but curiously 
enough it was postmarked in WD98-land!  

Whoever sent me this "you're a lid" card, really wanted me to get the 
message, because it was posted with a 34 cent stamp!  I am so proud of this 
card that I will post on my shack bulletin board.

Incidentally, I plan to work SS fone in the Unlimited category, and will 
probably continue to post lots of spots without sections to help all of those 
other stations in the U and M categories to work all they can.  I certainly 
hope other U's and M's do the same for me.
