If you don't operate from a station immediately adjacent to the Atlantic 
basin or in the Caribbean, you're a mere participant, not a real 
competitor. It's the limitation of the primitive scoring rules that date 
back to the early days of ham radio, when we had to keep score with a 
pencil and paper.

THIS is what you should be insulted about.
