[CQ-Contest] Cross-Entity Remote for Contesting and DXCC Now..

The Board voted based on the recommendation of the DXAC.
The DXAC based their decision on input from the ARRL members.  At least in theory.
Of course, it would have been nice if the DXAC rep from each Division had at least made a token effort to gather input from the membership.  All i can tell you is that I never heard a whisper regarding a request for input -- neither as a Member or as a Newsletter Editor who would have printed such a request to inform people.
Ultimately, though, it doesn't matter.  Either YOU have integrity in how YOU operate in contests, chase DX, and apply for awards... or YOU don't.
If YOU don't, your accomplishments are meaningless.  If YOU do, then they are not.   (And I mean "YOU" as in the reader, not in Paul or any one individual specifically)

The intent of the new rule is stated to be -

“It will continue to be up to the operator to decide what
types of legal remote control operating he/she will use
(if any) to contribute to an operating award,”

It's clear this represents an abdication of responsibility
by the ARRL. Welcome to the brave new world of the American
Internet Relay League.
