As I read through this I checked my calendar to see if today was April 1st.
If this is this really happening it's grounds for DQ IMO.

Seems there is a station sending out e-mails asking people to correct his
exchange for the ARRL DX Contest.  Seems that perhaps the power he sent was
too high.

I am AMAZED that anyone in radiosport thinks this is a good idea.  A ham
radio contest is supposed to be all about a two way exchange of information
on the radio.  If you sent a certain power level during the contest - that
is the "correct" thing for people to have logged.

Anyone who feels that the internet is part of this game should be DQ'd.
The contest ended last Sunday.

If you get such an e-mail - I encourage you to do two things:

- not make the change.  The log checker will notice what most people logged.
- use this as an opportunity to educate the person sending you the e-mail
