YOU feel it's unethical and YOU want them te respond publicly and defend
I think there is nothing wrong with what they did and I would not feel any
need to defend myself because according to the rules we all play by, I did
nothing wrong.

I would especially not feel the need to defend myself to people like you
who apperently think they are talking on behalf of the whole contesting
community, telling people what they should and shouldn't do. Reading all
the comments on this reflector regarding this subject, I'm under the strong
impression that the contesting community is devided on this one.

You are right about you not calling CR3L cheaters like UT5UGR directly. But
refering to a cheater like you did in you original post in my book is only
slightly less offending.

If you want to make changes to prevent category hopping then take it up
with of the rule makers. If category hopping is indeed a not accepted
contesting practice, this should be a pice of cake.

For now, let's agree to disagree on this one and leave it at that.
