[CQ-Contest] I just will not send in logs.

While I can understand your dismay over the way things have developed, not
submitting a log serves no purpose.

It becomes a non-event.

If anything, submit your log as a CHECKLOG as a protest.  This would be the
most visible way to make your feelings known about not competing.

If you don't submit a CHECKLOG, there's nothing - no evidence of protest.

If all those who are unhappy with the status quo would submit CHECKLOGS, the
long list of those would send quite a message, no?

Pete, I think the innovators of Skimmer and RBN and the like have mucked
up my beloved ham radio contesting so far that I, formerly an avid
contester and high scorer, have a new strategy.

I work my favorite contests as SO, AB or SB, HP, not assisted, as usual
with all the energy my old body delivers, BUT I DO NOT SEND IN A LOG.  I
recommend others in my situation do the same.
1.  to send in a log, in one way, means I want to enter a competition, and
with so many stacks (ant. or otherwise) against me, it is no longer a
competition for me.
2. to send in a log also in a small way perpetuates the mess as it has
evolved, and I do not like contributing to messes.

Sign me old-fashioned, 73
