I don't  quite get this vindictive contesting thing.  What a royal waste of 
your  time.  If the other guy doesn't quite measure up to your standard -  
whether that be cut numbers, sending too fast, sending too slow, not IDing  
enough - simply don't call him.  There are plenty of other stations to  
work, many of which probably meet your criteria.

Your "I'll sure show  him!!" or "I'll get him!" methods may result in the 
other guy losing a few  points but likely has minimal impact on his bottom 
line.  For sure it  does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for your score.  But I suppose if 
it makes YOU  feel all warm and fuzzy.....congratulations!
