After I made a presentation at last year's Asia-Pacific DX Convention on 
cheating in radiosport - where we looked in detail at every Q that was 
changed in B7P's 2007 CQWW CW log, as well as every time convicted 
self-spotter DK8ZB spotted himself from KP4KE in 2009 CQWW SSB (plus a 
look at what uniques in the logs of HQ stations in 2009 IARU were 
suggesting had anyone bothered to have looked at the time) - the silence 
from the audience I believe was from how stunned they were at learning 
what really goes on.

It showed on their faces.  They were not impressed.  Even some of the 
ones who don't contest were scowling.

No such visual suggestions to go on with the silence here.
