[CQ-Contest] SO+SOA survey monkey

Survey's are fun, but unless carefully designed, are of questionable value.

I would like to know how any contest entrant can definitively have any knowledge about the
state of (so-called) unclaimed assistance detection by any of the contest sponsors, unless
they are participating in the actual log checking.

I think including a free text answer to the this question (on the survey) should be mandatory:
"On what do you base your opinion?"

This is sort of like asking, "How do you know that what you read about a news event is accurate?"

Unless you are directly covering the news event yourself, you don't.

Anyone can have a "valid" opinion about whether or not SO and SOA should be combined.
But asking for their input on how well "cheating" is detected?  Totally different.
