I assume you speak of two points for QSOs in the same continent, but outside one's own country.
For Asia, Africa, South America, and Oceana, extending this two point rule would make sense.
For Europe, given the huge number of European multipliers that can be worked on all or nearly all bands, one point QSOs serve to provide some score parity with the rest of the world.
Three point QSOs for SA and Africa to EU and NA is another issue, which I'm not addressing here.

Hi I would like the committee to revisit  this rule.

I understand the reasons for this rule and the fact that most of the contesters 
in EU and NA who make up the vast super majority of all contesters on the planet 
appear to support it and are happy with it.

What I have never understood is why the reasons that apply to NA should not also 
apply to the remaining 4 continents, all having an equal or  greater 
geographical extent than NA, and would equally benefit from increased activity 
from stations in many multipliers who would have more incentive to get on, 
exactly as was rationalized for Caribbean contest expeditions in NA.

I would like to hear from contesters in EU and NA why this rule should not be 
extended to the remaining 4 continents.

Thanks and 73 Bob HS0ZIA
