What you say is really dangerous.
There are loopholes everywhere in the rules.
Rules require you to use certain level of output power to enter a category, but there is a loophlole, since no one is going to be able to verify that, according to your reasoning we are supossed to use whatever power level we want and then take advantage of the loophole to win a plaque?
Rules requiere a person to do all the logging and operating to be considered a single OP, but, there is a loophole since no one is going to be at your place to verify that. Is that mean, we must Take advantage of the loophole and use the seevices of a ghost OP, so that we can confortable sleep at night, and still claim single OP to gain the upper hand?
There are a few things that resolve loopholes of any kind: dignity, respect and sportsmanship.
