I tried fruitlessly to inject some common sense into the issue on the 
Topband reflector.  It is a very simple.  NA stations, with rare 
exceptions, shouldn't CQ in the window as described in the rules of 
the contest. Anyone who needs to have this explained won't understand 
the answer.
The thread quickly degenerated into the same irrelevancies and 
nonsense that frustrated you.  It seems the world is full of wanna-be 
lawyers who love to read their own biting insights and subtle 
witticisms on these reflectors.

Left undiscussed was the use of the window by loud Caribbean stations 
as their own private clear channel to run the US, as the thread was 
cut off when this subject came up.
