Thanks for taking the time to do this survey. As one of the more vocal person's on the reflector against this practice, I'm very disappointed and shocked at the survey results. I really don't see that this practice is any different than sanitizing your log to fix broken calls using internet databases as such as QRZ.com. In both cases you are using the internet AFTER the contest to alter your entry.

I now have even more respect for some of the top contesters in the world who would never consider doing something like this. We all know who those guys are.

That being said I predict many of the top scorers will no longer submit their scores to 3830 before the log deadline. That's too bad because it was fun to compare scores right after the contest ending.

I know in my case I won't be submitting my scores for any serious efforts that I do until after the log deadline.
