I'm really surprised at the response to this.  I don't think that's what 
Rick meant by his post.

In my note to rick, part of which he quoted, I offered a few reasons why 
I thought the cqcontest.net site (formerly cqcontest.ru) had not yet 
found wide acceptance among US hams, mostly with their roots in the site 
and its administration.  This is nothing new, though.  I've been 
advocating on-line scoreboards for 7 or 8 years now,  and have watched 
two previous efforts founder because their owners couldn't (or anyway 
didn't) support them.  I'm hoping now that the Russian proprietors will 
stick with it, improve their ghastly user interface, and continue to 
offer this service while we get over our reticence.
