Why is that?  Why would you care how anyone finds you?

How will you even be able to tell whether anyone finds you via spinning 
a knob or via CW Skimmer?  If anything, Skimmer spots are more evenly 
distributed in time compared with current packet/cluster spots that tend 
to result in congregated callers.

Are you worried about having to compete against folks using Skimmer?  If 
so, simply operate unassisted.

I don't get it ... what am I missing?
