KO7SS said "Maybe the "committee" and the "volunteers" are tired of checking
logs. Sure is easy to just

   have one big category. What did YOU last do to help check the logs?"


Have any of us been ASKED to help check logs?  I for one have not.  Anyone?


If the issue is about not having the time to check logs, then you FIRST have
to ask yourself (if you are running the contest), what is driving the
countless hours need?  If the answer is that it is demanded, who in fact is
demanding?  And ask them to help with log checking.


I see a group of people who have honestly "spun themselves up" trying to
achieve the impossible.  Thrown huge amounts of hours and fixes at it.
Still come up short.  And now want to amend the rules instead of admitting
that maybe the user group didn't demand the whole thing in the first place.


Personally, I would choose to a much less draconian oversight system than CQ
is attempting and sustain the traditional categories.
