[CQ-Contest] Maximum Time Limit for S/O

Once again: is there any problem with publishing the individual 
operation times in the score lists (without changing anything in maximum 
duration or categories)? IMHO it takes nothing away from anyone but adds 
a crucial information for that majority below the "happy few" fulltimers 
(to repeat: about 7 percent of logsending allband-participants in a 24 
-hour-contest with guaranteed high-rate like RDXC).
There are so many still reluctant parttimers when I read requests to 
submit logs - still not submitted by hams who made 200-500 QSOs during a 
big contest. Doesn´t that look like a potential still unexploited? Do we 
exploit this potential better by singing more hero-stories or by looking 
for the motives of them/us (everyday life as one important one not to be 
laughed at in a hobby-activity)? Or is it enough that they deliver their 
Best 73, Chris

(wondering how IOTA-contest and others did really survive when shorter 
durations are called here the "end of contesting"...)
