Just when did ham radio contesting stop being about having fun?

Yep! Not me! Me too! Yep! 

My solution has been to redefine my participation. It's working for me.

And of course, that raises another question: 
If writing the rules will take a team of lawyers, then each of us will have 
to consult with our $300-per-hour legal beagles to understand them. 

Is that the kind of hobby we want? 

I didn't get in to this so lawyers would get rich. If that's where we're 
going, stop the bus and let me off. 

Most of the rules were fine when we couldn't sit here and nitpick them to 
death as armchair barristers. The key is to stop over-analyzing.
