this is a prime example of why i have not turned my radio on for a 
contest in months.  for me it's a hobby, not my life.  some people just 
go too far with this crap and it really is sad.  it stopped being fun 
for me when contests became more about the post contest CSI crap as seen 
on this list than actually, you know, getting on the air and having 
fun.  i don't care if some station got attention to their operation with 
billions of spots on the cluster.  if they have a big signal, i will 
eventually work them. and that's what counts in the end, are they in the 

don't look for me an any contests this summer, i'm busy having fun with 
my family while i still can.
