Hammer. Nail. Done.

Perfect answer.

To me, it's pretty simple - everybody wants the rules to be specialized 
for them.
Sort of like tailoring an RFP to a certain set of criteria that you know 
only one company
can adhere to.

It's my opinion that if this is a major, life defining crisis issue for 
you, you need help. It's
supposed to be fun folks.  The contest sponsors know what they are doing 
- Randy and
his crew should be nominated for sainthood for doing what they do in the 
face of constant
critiquing of rules, categories, cheating - whatever.  If they see 
something that they believe
needs fixing, they'll fix it. If not, then not.

For my part - I'm going to keep on keeping on doing my Luddite thing and 
fun.  Life is too short to be arguing about radio contesting.
