That's one opinion - others differ.

If no one ever cheated, there would be no need to
submit logs - results would be based solely on
claimed scores.

The trouble with written logs is that discrepancies
with what actually happened on-air (whether deliberate
or accidental) often go undetected.

The benefit of audio logs is that the written log
can be cross-checked with what actually happened.
Technology has already made it easy to generate
both written and audio logs, and technology will
simplify the job of comparing them.

WRTC already requires audio logs - others will
