[CQ-Contest] Claiming assistance when not actually assisted

You're basing your argument on essentially arbitrary terms ... I'm going
by what it is that I actually do. If I operate unassisted I also meet
each and every requirement of operating assisted. If I operate QRP I
meet each and every requirement of operating LP and HP. If I operate CW
I meet each and every requirement of operating mixed. I see no
difference in any of those situations. At the very least I should be
able to choose which category I want to enter from among those I qualify
for, and in my opinion I don't see a good reason why I shouldn't be able
to enter all of them.
To be honest, I don't see the point in entering LP if I operated QRP and
some of my arguments here are more philosophical than anything else, but
the rigidity of thought displayed here bothers me.
