Say what??

At what number of spots does this change from just spotting your pal, to 
helping him "self spot"???

C'mon guys, this is silly. I hear a friend, whether it is a local, or one of 
the same JA's I normally work, I spot him. If I hear them on another band, 

Spotting will not go away. Kudo's to the spot detectives, that is a good 
thing to help wring out the blatent abusers, but, if I want to spot a pal, what is 
the harm. What if I'm don't have time to do a full effort, but I just want to 
get on & work a friend on all 6 bands, or maybe just a few in my local club. 
Is this ok? ( oh boy, another long, useless discussion coming up on this one! 

If you don't like spotting, don't do it.
