I don't really agree with your assessment Jeff. Aren't we all friends here? 
Why can't I discuss what happened to me with my fellow contesters? Is the 
contest committee the "Enlightened Ones" that never make a mistake?

If I have nothing to hide and feel mistreated I will go and tell someone: 
Hey this happenend to me.. can you believe it? And the ones to tell my story 
are my fellow contestors. Now if I am a fat cheater and get caught, wouldn't 
I just go and hide under the first rock I find and not make any noise? But I 
have not cheated I will make some noise and make my case be heard!

I for one think there is something brewing in these DQs and somehting has to 
been done... Where there's smoke, there's fire...
