So where your butt sits determines if it is ham radio?

I really don't understand those that want to limit the participation in 
contests.  Are we not better off with more people contesting than less?  
I think so.  Running remote places most at a disadvantage.    What is it 
about remote operation that scares you?

What if I can't drive myself to the station because I am recovering from 
an illness or a myriad of other reasons.  Under your rules I am out of 

Remote operating is going to open the world of HF and contesting to many 
that have never had that option before.

Repeaters is not Ham Radio and to think I thought I had heard it all.
