I saw it differently. It seemed to me that NN4X was being quite
disrespectful toward skilled operators, who by simple virtue of not
being able to afford a competent station of their own, should be
discriminated against if they get the opportunity to compete from a
better station. His suggestion would also open up an endless and
contentious argument of what exactly qualifies for such a category, as
at least a few replies here have already identified.
A silly suggestion isn't courage.
