All that I am asking is that CQ provide contest results to contesters who enter 
their contests on their CQ Contest website, PERIOD!
What if enough contesters got pissed off enough to quit renewing their 
subscriptions?  They would go out of business.
What is the problem of putting a .pdf or word doc listing of contesting scores 
on the internet that was previously posted in the magazine?
Many DX'ers and especially those in 3rd world countries can't afford a 
subscription, and even if they did subscribe chances are the magazine wouldn't 
reach them anyway.  Why shouldn't they be able to go to CQ's web site to see 
their contest score?  CQ's Bread and Butter is contesting.  They should provide 
more support to their contests.
I subscribe, but I don't want to have to sort through a stack of old magazines 
to check out contest scores for various contests over the years.
ARRL/QST does a great job of posting contest scores on their website.  CQ should 
do the same.
