[CQ-Contest] Improper packet spotting?

As a "big gun" the pile ups resulting from packet are more of a nuisance than 
a hinderance.  I would imagine most of the other big guns don't have a 
problem with the pileups.  They are usually first at the feeding trough.  They work 
the guy and then go on their way.

In the few M/S operations from my station it was very interesting to see who 
got there first and who worked him at the beginning.  Some of the better known 
operations would just continually call and never shut up to let the spotted 
stain respond.  My sympathies go out to the little guns who get the crap kicked 
out of them in the packet pileups.  

I do not use packet in my single op operations, and I probably never will.  
Maybe I'm just old fashioned.
