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.
