I think we should be very careful about using a mathmatical formala to determine human behavior, especially during an activity as complex as a DX contest. I can envision circumstances where it could look like I was a Packet cheater when I wasn't using it. For example, I S&P up the band and unbeknownst to me there's a big MM station tuning the same direction just ahead of me and spotting stations left and right. It would look exactly as though I was chasing his spots even though I was an honest Single Op station.

There are hundreds of ways to cheat, this all comes down to the honor system anyway. I get DQ'd by some "formula" and that's the day I find something else to do.
