Me too.  It's not that I'm anti "technology", but it seems to me people are missing a part of what makes contesting, or DXing for that matter, enjoyable when they rely on tools such at these to make QSO's.  I've always found it far more satisfying to uncover a multiplier, additional QSO's, or work a new one on Topband when it's not aided by something that replaces operator skill.
