Hi Steve,

that's my opinion. Maybe, as am not English native, I said that a bit to 
artless. Maybe should say - it is not important and significant braking of 
rules and does not give any advantage or change final score at all. Same as 
running 1780W instead 1500W by rules.

Let keep a right direction and try to have contesting in fair play field.
