I have been observing this whole thing as an innocent bystander. I wasn't
at the station in question during the contest, so I have no idea what
actually happened there. I don't know what the contest sponsors saw that
made them DQ the station. But I do know that if I were wronged, I would
present whatever data I could amass as evidence of my innocence. If the
contest sponsors would still not change their position, I know that
complaining about them would accomplish exactly nothing. I would just let
it slide. Or in the words of John Cougar Mellencamp, "Suck it up and tough
it out and be the best you can."
