That is a bit far-fetched. If DARC *allows *packet, then it isn't cheating
anymore. That would be like me saying "Since ARRL won't stop dirtbags that

can't pick and choose which technological advancements are or are not
  I'm not trying to start an argument, I just think the subject is
 For awhile after most everyone was using CT or NA, I was logging on paper
with those paper dupe-sheets. I have a computer now.
 As far as WAE, not "everybody *has* to use packet".
