Funny enough, mine did as well ..this is the first I've seen of it ..

I'm sorry that NN4X feels that the competition as it stands now is unfair
...so in that spirit, May I suggest another new category ..

Troll .. SONB QRP++++ .. I believe Romeo ex. 3W3RR will sponsor a trophy.

Disrespectively committed

What difference does it matter who paid for the station?? Presumably you're
concerned about some station owner having deeper pockets than you have, but
I can't imagine the can of worms that you'd be opening if you tried to tier
results by how much somebody paid for their station since that concern would
have nothing to do with who actually paid for it.  
Hams who contest from their own stations range from those who are unemployed
to retired millionaires.

My email client flagged your post as junk mail, by the way. Software keeps
getting smarter and smarter ...
