[CQ-Contest] LOTW DXCC

It is far easier to establish security and validation in advance 
than spend all the time to investigate, prove and then "clean up" 
after significant cheating.  

Look at the problems with operations that lacked documentation 
in years past - before the acceptance rules were tightened.  In 
addition, look at the problems from by alleged QSL managers a 
few years ago and the difficulty in cleaning up that mess.  

I am sorry that you feel that the documentation standard for 
LotW is excessive and hope that ARRL can eventually reach an 
agreement with other national societies to make that checking 
more convenient to those outside North America.  In the meantime, 
why not put up with the one-time inconvenience in exchange for 
much easier QSLing in the future?
