[CQ-Contest] Is it time that the contest sponsors officiallyidentify SCP as "assisted?"

Doug's right. Unenforceability doesn't mean you can't spell out expected behaviour.

True integrity is behaving correctly even when you know you can't be caught. 

Would the people who subscribe to the theory about not adding unenforceable rules also argue for the elimination of all current unenforceable rules? Can you prove Joe and Jack didn't arrange their Q over the phone? Can you tell on the air Jim's Bird is miscalibrated and he's actually transmitting six watts instead of five? Or that for the last of those six dead hours in Bob's SS log he wasn't listening for the right time jump back in? 

In saying that, I offer no comment on whether SCP is, or should be, assistance. It's been part of the contesting fabric so long, why change it now when you let it slide for so long?
