On CW, we already have the equivalent of self spotting, thanks to CW 
Skimmer and the RBN. It's virtually impossible to NOT be spotted. CW 
Skimmer/RBN is the great equalizer - you no longer have to depend on a 
network of friends to spot you.

We wouldn't be having this discussion if there was a SSB Skimmer. Right 
now, we have a system where "those with the right friends" have an 
advantage. Why not simply allow self spotting on SSB ?
