Points well taken Bill, but eliminating packet from contests by rule does
prevent cheating any more than putting up a speed limit sign.  I also don't
think we need policemen to control contests.  Those who cheat, already
know who they are, and most of us who are actively involved in contesting
recognize the difference between a skilled operator and a cheat.  I think
that the great majority of competitors are honorable.  There are a few that
get far too much ink for their sly self serving operating practices.
