Dear Paul,
I do agree with your sayings. CW Contest is to work it with our ears, not machines, not skimmers, not anything.
Maybe a bit cluster for 5-10 Mult.  its OK inside our contest edges and our fun.
Why we run a CW contest ???  For our fun and to enjoy our amateur lives. Our hobby, our passion. CW . That's all.

I'd vote for remote control - it puts the wires back into wireless.

The contesters who have freely adopted DX Cluster are those
who don't know, or don't care, about the difference between
the internet and amateur radio.

The contesters who want to freely adopt Skimmer are those
who prefer to treat CW as just another data mode.

Better blind than ignorant?
