That is exactly what happens to some contests.
And then if you'll ask contest manager about them - you'll get the famous
answer "about volunteers", if ever you'll get an answer.
I, for instance, sent few e-mails to then NRRL contest manager  ( I see that
he is a subscriber to this list)  regarding SAC 2001 and got nothing in
return. Like I don't even exist. This kind of behavior forces people to
choose ... participate or not in this contest the next time.

And I agree with NC2N: CQ sponsored contests differ - CQ RJ RTTY, CQ WPX, CQ
WW, and WW160 - probably everything depends on a particular contest manager
and we don't have to blame all CQ magazine staff for that.
