Joe Sixpack Non-Contester is in the family room on Saturday evening trying
to watch TV, but the XYL is wrapping Xmas gifts and generally obstructing
his sight lines, so he heads over to the shack and notices all the activity
on 160.  Cool!  He makes a few contacts, spots some loud ones on the local
cluster.  He doesn't know about no steenking stewperry contest, let alone
the rules.  

Pretty damned arrogant if you think he should follow the rules of a contest
he's not a part of.

What are you going to do, DQ him?  Don't take this hobby so seriously!
