Hi Ed,
What I tried to say was that power cheating is detectable depending on the
infrastructure you have for it.
DX alerting abuse cannot be proved despite whatever infrastructure you have
for it.
Power abuse, though it is hard to determine, is not impossible.
In the case of unclaimed assistance it is impossible to determine if a
contester found a few tens of extra mults throughout the weekend and

Power cheating if of a total different nature and it is a matter of
infrastructure to prove that someone is cheating.

In the case of unclaimed assistance it is not."

Martin, you make a great point, but probably not the one you intended.

If Power cannot be proven and assistance could, why are we not preserving
the assisted and unassisted classes and making all power classes "merge" or
"converge" (I love the politically correct terms for elimination) since they
cannot be proven?

The dialog should simply be what is the cost of the required infrastructure
and does the user community want to pay for it or not?
