Well, the more we *require*, the more we frustrate
less-than-computer-literate non-contesters, and the fewer log
submissions we get.  

However, offering the *opportunity* to submit additional information
(for example, in the Cabrillo header) offers the possibility of more
detailed Web reporting without scaring off potential entrants.  

Of course, just what information we offer to tabulate may be an
unsolvable debate...
